Rawalpindi: The Pakistan Army on Tuesday once again warned India against any misadventure which it said would elicit a tit-for-tat response from Pakistan regardless of cost.

"Irresponsible statements by Indian military commanders particularly about AJ&K are expression of their frustration due to their failure to handle situation in IOJ&K ,"  Major General Asif Ghafoor, the Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said on Twitter.

He said such statements are attempts to divert world’s attention from Indian state terrorism and siege of IOJ&K.

"Accusations of infiltration/presence of alleged terrorists camps are pretext for a false flag operation/misadventure which if tried shall have serious consequences for regional peace.Pak Armed Forces are fully prepared to respond to any aggression/misadventure regardless of cost," he said in another tweet," he said.

Earlier, the Foreign Office strongly rejected the statement made by Indian Army Chief on Monday where he alleged "reactivation of terror camp" in Balakot.

Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal refuted the statement made by the Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat and said India would not succeed in hiding state terrorism in occupied Kashmir by levelling allegations against Pakistan.

“The Indian allegations of "infiltration" from Pakistan reflect a desperate attempt to divert international attention from the humanitarian nightmare in occupied Kashmir being perpetrated by Indian occupation forces,” Dr Faisal said.
