Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif on Tuesday urged India to refrain from plunging the region into war after the IAF struck the Jaish-e-Mohammed’s (JeM) biggest training camp in Balakot in Pakistan.

 

Mr. Sharif called on the Indian leadership to “rethink its war strategy” and warned that if India initiated a war, then Pakistan would hoist its flag in New Delhi, reported Geo News .

“The Indian leadership should come to its senses and act responsibly and should not [plunge] the people of South Asia into war,” he said.

“It will be a significant mistake on the Indian side to mistake Pakistan’s stance as weakness,” said the Leader of Opposition in the National Assembly.
