Talking about the boasts made by the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying that India can defeat Pakistan in less than 10 days, Major General Asif Ghafoor said that Pakistan’s armed forces will always surprise you (India). He said that it’s not a matter of 7 or 10 days; rather, it relates to the war’s repercussions.

The DG ISPR said that they had already told India that you would initiate a war but it would be us who would finish it. However, he maintained that Pakistan’s civil and military leadership is desirous of peace in the region. Therefore, he added that the Indian leadership also must be cognizant of the significance of lasting peace in the region.
