In a observation launched past due on Sunday, the MoFA rejected Singhs statements and accused the Indian govt of engag[ing] in falsehoods and fantasies whilst pointing palms at neighbours.

His unfounded remarks are delusional at the one hand, and reflective of Indias feature hostility against its neighbours at the different, stated the Pakistani observation.

Nuclear-armed India and Pakistan have fought 3 full-scale wars since gaining independence from the British in 1947.

Relations were just about frozen since a 2019 army standoff within the disputed territory of Kashmir that noticed an aerial skirmish and each international locations bomb each and every others territory.

The 2019 standoff was once defused after Pakistan shot down an Indian fighter jet over Pakistani airspace and returned the pilot after two days of top pressure.

The two international locations continuously accuse each and every different of sponsoring or facilitating armed teams running at the others soil.

Such accusations have greater in frequency and tenor since 2014 when Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modis right-wing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was once elected to energy.

Pakistan is totally able to protecting itself in opposition to any aggression. The complete international was once witness to Pakistans capacity and unravel in thwarting the Indian misadventure in February 2019, stated Pakistans observation on Sunday.
