Conventional war with India would lead to nuclear war: Imran Khan

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan ruled out peace talk with India in the aftermath of abolition of Article 370 from the Indian Constitution by the BJP-led Narendra Modi government.

Article 370 had given special status to Jammu and Kashmir. On August 5 the government stripped it and segregated the state into union territories, separating Ladakh from the rest.

Following the measure Pakistan downgraded all diplomatic ties with India and suspended bilateral trade too terming abrogating of Article 370 as illegal annexation of Kashmir.

In the August 16 UNSC closed door session, Russia, France and United States backed India over the Article 370 matter. However, China supported Pakistan.

India argued stripping Article 370 from the Constitution is its internal matter. Several countries backed the stance and asked Pakistan to review its decisions to preserve channels for diplomatic communications.

In an interview to Al Jazeera the prime minister said that Pakistan could lose against India in a conventional war but the country will fight to the death.

Imran Khan added conventional war could lead to nuclear war as both the countries are nuclear-armed.

He said, “I know Pakistan will fight to the death for freedom when a nuclear-armed country fights to the death, there are consequences.”
