IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Islamabad, Jan. 16, IRNA -- Prime Minister Syed Yousuf Raza Gilani has said that Pakistan and India are nuclear powers and there is no possibility of war between the two neighbourly countries.
Talking to newsmen in Islamabad Thursday, he said India is issuing provocative statements time and again under tremendous public pressure.
Responding to a question about the recent statement of Indian Army chief, the Prime Minister said the foreign office has already given its comments on the statement.
The Indian army chief Deepak Kapoor said on Wednesday that Pakistan has moved some troops to its eastern borders with India and that he regarded war as a 'last resort'.
Gilani said envoys will be sent abroad to project Pakistan's view point on situation in the region and Pakistan-India tension.
He said the government values opinion of the political parties on the major issues and in this regard, session of the Parliament was convened to discuss all the confronting matters to take the public into confidence.
About inquiry into the Benazir's assassination Gilani expressed the confidence that the United Nation's commission will soon start its probe into her murder as we are fulfilling their formalities.
