Parrikar’s comments provocative: Pakistan

Pakistan on Saturday said that “unfounded allegations” and “provocative statements” made by Indian Ministers were not conducive to “peace in the region.”

“There must not be any miscalculation about Pakistan's resolve to defend itself and thwart any aggression,” the Pakistani Foreign Ministry spokesperson said. The Pakistani statement is in apparent response to Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar’s comments on Friday. According to a PTI report, Mr. Parikkar said: “I feel that there has to be some strong response which will once and for all or at least reduce this blatant attempts. It's an open secret that they [militants] came from Pakistan,” he said, adding, “you will see the developments in the next six months.” “I am not talking of a full scale war. Full-scale war is totally different. But if there are places where you get the terrorists across, there are people who do it. I think those people will have to be brought under pressure,” the PTI quoted the Minister as saying.
