Message of Federal Minister for Defence, Pervez Khattak on the eve of Defence Day of Pakistan

Islamabad, September 05, 2019 (PPI-OT): 6th of September is a milestone in the annals of our history. It reminds us of the indomitable courage and unprecedented sacrifices rendered by our Armed Forces for the defence of the sacred frontiers of this Motherland. We hold in great esteem the bravery of our warriors and are profoundly indebted to all SHUHADA and GHAZIS for carving a niche in the history of Pakistan. They are the real heroes and the entire nation pays huge respect to them and their families. Pakistan is a peaceful and responsible nuclear state. It harbours no aggressive ambition.

However, its armed forces are fully capable of defeating any kind of adventurism from external or internal elements. They can go to any extent in defending their motherland, its integrity and independence. The world has witnessed one such exemplary display of its professional excellence in the recent past. While celebrating the triumphant days of 1965 war, we stand today by our Kashmiri brethren. The unilateral Indian action cannot suppress their just and indigenous struggle for self-determination. Indian Occupied Kashmir is a disputed territory, recognized under the UN Security Council’s resolutions.

Therefore, any kind of unilateral action on India’s part is of no significance. Any kind of miscalculation can put South Asian region at risk and the whole world’s peace endangered. In the end, let us make a firm commitment that we will all learn from the spirit, valour and discipline of the heroes of 1965, and put in our sincere efforts to build a stronger, progressive and prosperous Pakistan. Pakistan Armed Forces Zindabad Pakistan, Paindabad.
