Imran Khan spoke on Kashmir between India and Pakistan – Pakistan will not use nuclear weapons first

Amid the ongoing tension over Kashmir, Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan said on Monday that his country will never start a war with India.Imran Khan , while addressing the people of the Sikh community gathered in the Governor’s House, said, ‘We will never start a war. Pakistan and India are both nuclear powers and if tension increases, the world will face danger. Imran Khan said that war is not the solution to any problem. He said, ‘I want to tell India that war is not the solution to any problem. Those who win in war also have to lose a lot. War gives rise to many other issues. During this, Imran said that Pakistan will never use the first atomic bomb.

India is not in talks with Pakistan after the terrorist attack on Pathankot air base in January 2016 by Pakistan-based terrorists and says that talks and terrorism cannot go hand in hand. Tensions between the two countries escalated earlier this year when a suicide bomber from a Pakistan-based terrorist organization attacked a bus of CRPF personnel in Pulwama district of Kashmir. 40 CRPF personnel were killed in this attack.

Amid growing resentment, the Indian Air Force carried out an anti-terrorism operation and on 26 February targeted Jaish’s largest terrorist training camp in Balakot inside Pakistan’s border. The very next day, the Pakistani Air Force tried to target Indian targets and during this time an Indian MiG-21 plane crashed in the air clash, while its pilot was captured by Pakistan. He was handed over to India on 1 March.

Tensions between India and Pakistan recently increased again when India repealed most of the provisions of Article 370 of the Constitution giving special status to Jammu and Kashmir. In response to this, Pakistan reduced the status of its diplomatic relations with India and expelled the Indian High Commissioner. Referring to his earlier telephone talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Khan said, ‘I told him that both India and Pakistan have similar circumstances. I told them about climate change. We are facing an explosive situation. If we do not solve this problem (climate change) then there will be water shortage (in both countries). I told them that together we can resolve the Kashmir issue through dialogue.
