New Delhi:

Pakistan, in a knee-jerk reaction to Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat's remarks on Friday, has challenged India to "test our resolve" over a nuclear war. 

Pakistan's Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif tweeted on Saturday, "Very irresponsible statement by Indian Army Chief, not befitting his office. Amounts to invitation for nuclear encounter. If that is what they desire, they are welcome to test our resolve. The general's doubt would swiftly be removed, inshallah." 

Jumping on the Twitter bandwagon, Dr Mohammad Faisal, Spokesperson of Ministry of Foreign Affairs said, “The threatening and irresponsible statement by the Indian Army Chief today is representative of a sinister mindset that has taken hold of India. Pakistan has demonstrated deterrence capability. These are not issues to be taken lightly. There must not be any misadventure based on miscalculation. Pakistan is fully capable of defending itself.”  

General Bipin Rawat had on Friday while addressing the press in the run-up to the Army Day had said that Pakistan's nuclear bogey will be thoroughly exposed if the situation escalates to a war.

"We will call their bluff. If given the task, we will not say we cannot cross the border because they have nuclear weapons," he had said.
