Pakistan hints war against India, says will avenge blood of their soldiers
New Delhi : Contrary to what Pakistan's new Prime Minister Imran Khan claimed, Pakistan Army chief General Qamar Jawed Bajwa on Thursday asked its troops to avenge blood of its soldiers shed on the border.
"Our troops have made great sacrifices to the nation. I laud the people of Kashmir who have stood firm in such testing times. Our nation will not forget our troops who laid down their lives for this nation. We will avenge the blood of our soldiers being shed on the border," Bajwa said while addressing the Defence Day function.
Bajwa's claims come as a contradiction to his own government's diplomatic idea. On the same event, Khan had said that his aim is to bring peace back in the nation and they will not fight any other's war.
"For the past three weeks, I have been seeing presentations on all the problems that this country is facing, and I can tell you this that we will become a nation and rise again. We can overcome these problems once we strengthen the rule of law in this country," Khan was quoted by The Dawn as saying.
In his earlier speeches, Khan had maintained that he wants a good relationship with his neighbouring nations.
