Countries Backing India Will Be Hit By Missile: Pakistan Minister

Pakistan has unilaterally downgraded bilateral ties with India after it opposed abrogation of Article 370.

A Pakistani minister has threatened a missile attack against any country that supports India over Kashmir and said Islamabad will consider such a country its enemy.

"If tensions with India rise on Kashmir, Pakistan will be compelled to go to war. Hence, those countries backing India and not Pakistan (over Kashmir) will be considered as our enemy and a missile will be fired at India and those nations supporting it," ANI news agency quoted Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan, Ali Amin Gandapur, as saying.

Pakistan-based journalist Naila Inayat tweeted a part of the video in which the minister is seen making the inflammatory remarks.

Islamabad has unilaterally downgraded bilateral ties after it cried foul over New Delhi's move to abrogate Article 370 that granted special powers to Jammu and Kashmir.

India has maintained that the decision is its internal matter.

In his maiden address at the UN General Assembly in New York in September, Prime Minister Imran Khan had devoted his 50-minute speech on Kashmir and cautioned the global leaders against nuclear war with India.

"If a conventional war starts between the two countries anything could happen. A country seven times smaller than its neighbour what will it do -- either surrender or fight for its freedom," he had said.
