Pakistan says no to war

The Pakistan army stating that it is not interested in fighting a war with India could pave the way for both the countries making a new beginning.
Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, the Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) – the media wing of the Pakistan army said, “Our defence, our desire for peace, should not be mistaken for weakness.”
Ghafoor said Pakistan wants to respect the truce agreement. “The Indians have to realize and understand where they want to go. We are two nuclear powers, and there is no space for war.”
Major General Ghafoor’s statement has come a day after India and Pakistan armies exchanged heavy firing in Jammu sector. Just one week before DGMOs of India and Pakistan had agreed to implement the 2003 ceasefire agreement in letter and spirit.
Many people believe that statement given by the Pakistan army at this point of time is very significant as there is no political dispensation at place in the country.
The statement has come directly from the “horse’s-mouth.” Everyone knows that major policy decisions in Pakistan are taken by its army.
Maj Gen Ghafoor has put the ball in India’s court and now Indian army has to respond. If the the truce is implemented in letter and spirit it can definitely help in making the relations between the two countries better. At present Indo-Pak ties are at their lowest ebb. If both the countries decide that military aggression is no solution and talks are the only way out then lot can be achieved.
People in Jammu and Kashmir have kept their fingers crossed as they know it very well that whenever India and Pakistan fight they (Kashmiris) get trampled.
