Military capable of subduing any foreign aggression: Khwaja Asif
SIALKOT: The armed forces are fully capable of effectively responding to any aggression and protecting the country’s boundaries, Defence Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif said on Sunday.

He added that Pakistan would not compromise on its sovereignty and would adopt all options to protect every inch of the motherland.

He said Pakistan as a peace-loving country was making sincere efforts to develop cordial relations with its neighbours on the basis of equality but India was trying to create unrest in the region.
The defence minister said that Operation Zarb-i-Azb had been launched to eliminate terrorists and restore the write of the state in troubled areas.
