Pakistan says it has “reliable intelligence” India is planning a military attack this month, something India dismissed as “war hysteria”.
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi says he made the allegations “with responsibility”, arguing the aggression aimed to raise “diplomatic pressure” against his country.
Pakistan has also summoned India’s Deputy High Commissioner to protest against what it says are India’s plans.
India rejects the irresponsible and preposterous statement by the Foreign Minister of Pakistan intended to whip up war hysteria in the region.
Already tense relations between the two deteriorated this year when Pakistan-based militants killed dozens of Indian troops in Indian-administered Kashmir.
India responded with air strikes on what it said was a militant training camp in Pakistani territory.
Soon afterwards, Pakistan shot down an Indian jet in Pakistan-administered Kashmir, and captured its pilot.
