Naval Chief Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi has said Pakistan Navy is fully capable and prepared to respond to any misadventure by the enemy. He was addressing the concluding ceremony of Pakistan Navy’s war exercises “Shamsheer-e-Behr and Tarseel-e-Behr” in Karachi on Thursday.
The Naval Chief said the geographical and political environment in the region has become much complicated after India’s illegal annexation of occupied Kashmir. He said India’s jingoistic attitude has posed a serious threat to peace in the region.
He said war exercises carry special significance in the improvement of operational preparedness. Admiral Zafar Mahmood Abbasi expressed satisfaction over the successful holding of the war games and the proposals.
He thanked the Army, Air Force and representatives of other ministries for fully participating in the exercises. Speaking at the occasion, Chief of the Naval Staff highlighted the significance of war games in reviewing naval war plans in sync with military & national security policy while also exploring operational concepts and refining developmental strategy.
He said that the present Indian leadership is a product of Hindutwa ideology of RSS and is likely to follow radical oppressive policies in IoK which may lead to a conflict with Pakistan to divert world attention from Kashmir. Therefore, prevailing environment is likely to continue posing challenge to our national security in foreseeable future. Pakistan Navy in sync with govt policies and other armed forces is ready in all respects to give a befitting response to any misadventure by the enemy.
Tensions between India and Pakistan are running high since August 5, when Narendra Modi led BJP government revoked article 370 and 35A of Indian constitution which granted special status to Kashmir.
