New Delhi:

Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif issued a nuclear threat to India while responding to a statement of Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat on Saturday.

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

The Indian Army chief on Friday had dismissed Pakistan's reckless threats about its tactical nuclear weapons being an effective counter to India's conventional military superiority.

"Pakistan's nuclear bogey will be thoroughly exposed if it actually comes to a war,” Rawat said.
