NEW DELHI: In a warning seemingly aimed at Pakistan, Home Minister Rajnath Singh has said his country would not hesitate to retaliate if fired upon
India wants good and friendly relations with its neighbours and will continue its policy of not disturbing anyone, he said at an event in Bhopal Saturday night, according to the Press Trust of India.
But if someone fires at us first, we will not count the retaliatory bullets, Rajnath added. We will not disturb anyone, but if disturbed, wont spare anyone either.
The Indian home minister also said that New Delhi was ready to discuss Kashmir with Islamabad, but only if talks focused on the territory administered by the Pakistani side of the Line of Control (LoC).
While meeting the Pakistan Rangers delegation, I made it clear to them that Kashmir was, is and will remain and integral part of India, he said. If Pakistan wishes to talk about Kashmir, then talk about Pakistan-occupied Kashmir only. Agencies
