Addressing a news conference in Multan, Qureshi said there is “credible information that India is readying for another act of aggression” against Pakistan.
“A [fresh] act of aggression by India against Pakistan is likely between April 16 and 20. We have credible information that [suggests] there is fear of a new act of aggression by India during this window,” he said.
“After consultation with Prime Minister Imran Khan, we have decided to share this information with the people of Pakistan as well as the international community immediately. It is our policy to keep the nation informed,” the minister added.
“Fear of war has not yet dissipated,” Qureshi said, as he called on the United Nations and the international community to play their role in maintaining peace and stability in the region.
“Pakistan has apprised all five permanent member states of the United Nations Security Council [China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States] of India’s attempts to disrupt peace,” he shared.
“The international community must take notice of India’s irresponsible behaviour. The world must not stay silent, or peace and stability in South Asia could suffer.”
