Pakistan warn India as spat grows

The Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has said Pakistan will retaliate if India takes military action against it.

Khan said instead of using Pakistan as a ‘whipping boy,’ India should seek out the root causes of violence in the region.

Tensions between India and her neighbour are frostier than ever. On Monday four Indian soldiers were killed in Kashmir.

The army said two terrorists were also killed. On Monday, Pakistan recalled its envoy from Delhi for consultations.

Last week, the Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised a strong response to a suicide attack in Indian Kashmir which killed more than 40 security personnel.

India is threatening the complete isolation of Pakistan, along with curtailing existing trade privileges. The attack, which targeted an Indian military convoy, caused outrage across the country.

It is believed the Jaish-e-Mohammad group carried out the atrocity. Mr. Modi warned Pakistan against creating instability in India, by failing to control the militant group, which is based on Pakistan soil and is believed to have links to the Pakistani intelligence services.

Pakistan said it was concerned about the bombing, but rejected the claim that it was responsible. Mr Khan said if India had any proof to the contrary, it should be shared.
