Pak Foreign Minister asks people to hope for best but prepare for worst

Multan, Fri, 26 Dec 2008 ANI

Multan, Dec 26 (ANI): Pakistan Foreign Minister has refused to rule out war against India, saying that the country should prepare for the worst.

 

"We should hope for the best but prepare for the worst," the Daily Times quoted Qureshi, as saying.

 

Asked if he would rule out war, the Foreign Minister said: "I am not ruling out anything. But if war is imposed, we will respond to it like a brave, self-respecting nation."

 

Qureshi also asked India to refrain from any surgical strike, because it will compel Pakistan to respond.

 

Qureshi said India's troop mobilisation could not be compared to that in 2001 after a terrorist attack on its parliament in 2001, but added that Pakistan was monitoring the situation, and its armed forces including the air force were alert.

 

Despite heightened tensions, Qureshi said that Pakistan wants peace with India. (ANI)
