President condemns unprovoked Indian firing on LoC

President Mamnoon Hussain Thursday condemned the unprovoked firing by Indian forces on the Line of Control (LoC) saying that India should not undermine peace in the region through its warmongering.

In a statement, the president said the whole nation and armed forces were ready and united for the defense of the motherland.

India is trying to divert attention from its ongoing atrocities and brutalities in the occupied Kashmir, he said

adding that India wanted to divert attention of the international community through devious ways but emphasized that India would never be successful in this regard.

President Mamnoon underscored that Pakistan was desirous

of peace in the region and did not want confrontation with any country but warned that any act of aggression would be

forcefully retaliated.

Our armed forces were fully prepared and had full

capability to thwart any aggression, he added.
