Aggressive Indian posture

THE recent comments by the Indian army chief said that Islamabad’s nuclear bluff would only aggravate the already tense relations between the two neighbouring nuclear states underestimate Pakistan’s nuclear capability, ignoring the fact that Islamabad is fully capable of giving New Delhi a befitting reply.

Indian aggressive posture towards Pakistan, in general, and after the announcement of Trump’s South Asia and Afghanistan policy, in particular, posed serious threats to the regional stability and security. Also, the greater role assigned to India by the US is not only an attempt to sabotage the China-Pakistan Economic Cooperation (CPEC) project, but also to jeopardise Pakistan’s national interest.

Pakistan needs to reassess its ties with the United States which often encourage India to adopt aggressive military doctrines and even contemplate military adventurism.
