Pakistan capable of surgical strikes: Nawaz Sharif

ISLAMABAD: In what apparently has come as a warning from Pakistan to India, Prime Minister Mohammad Nawaz Sharif on Friday proclaimed that the country was capable of carrying out surgical strikes across India, a nuclear-armed rival.
In a meeting of the federal cabinet presided over by the Prime Minister in Islamabad, the premier stated that it was in conceivable of India to allege Pakistan of backing Uri attack within hours after the strike without any investigation or evidence.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif branded Indian claims of carrying out surgical strike in wee hours of Thursday morning after crossing mined territory on “foot,” false and cleared that Pakistan was capable of covertly landing anywhere in India and executing a pre-meditated operation.
Nawaz Sharif said that Pakistan wanted peace to pursue its development agenda but every Pakistani was ready to defend the motherland if need be.
He stressed that Kashmir was an unfinished agenda of partition of the sub-continent and India’s continued brutalities in Occupied Kashmir and aggression were unacceptable.
