RAWALPINDI: There is no space for war between Pakistan and India as both are nuclear powers, said the spokesman of the Pakistan Army.

Interacting with media on Monday afternoon, Major General Asif Ghafoor, Director General of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said Pakistan's desires peace and is committed to defending every inch of the country.

Major General Ghafoor said that Pakistan wants to respect the existing truce agreement with India.

"We are willing to ignore the first shot that is fired from the Indian side, provided it does not result in a casualty on our side. However, the second shot would be responded in kind," he said.

"The Indians have to realise and understand where they want to go in the future. We are two nuclear powers and there is no space for war. Pakistan's desire for peace should not be construed as a weakness," Major General Ghafoor said.

"The DGMO has given an undertaking to his Indian counterpart about respecting the 2003 ceasefire agreement and the Pakistan Army is committed to uphold it. But, we will give a befitting response if the Indian Army hits our civilian population," Major General Ghafoor added.

"India should decide how it wants to proceed. We are two nuclear powers and there is no space for war. Our priority is to respect the ceasefire agreement, we will not respond to the first bullet fired by Indian at us. But if civilians are targeted, we will be forced to retaliate," he said.

"We request the Indian Army and media to defuse tense situation. Recently, I had interaction with SAARC journalists, including Indians. We took them to North Waziristan. They asked a question that a high-profile incident happens in India whenever ties are improved between Pakistan and India. I told them you have witnessed only two incidents such as Mumbai attacks while Pakistan has faced thousands of such incidents," he said.
