A Pakistan minister has threatened any country that will support India over the Kashmir issue with 'missile attack'. Pakistan Federal Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan Ali Amin Gandapur had said that any country which will not stand with Pakistan over Kashmir will be taken as 'enemy' and hit with missiles.
"If tensions with India rise on Kashmir, Pakistan will be compelled to go to war. Those countries backing India and not Pakistan (over Kashmir) will be considered our enemy and a missile will be fired at India and those nations supporting it," Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit Baltistan Ali Amin Gandapur said at an event on Tuesday.
Pakistan-based journalist Naila Inayat tweeted a part of the video in which the minister is seen making the inflammatory remarks. Gandapur’s statement went viral soon.

Meanwhile, five migrant labourers from West Bengal were killed and another injured in a terrorist attack in Kulgam district of Kashmir on Tuesday evening.
The attack happened on a day a delegation of parliamentarians from the European Union is visiting Kashmir to talk to locals and ask them about their experience after the abrogation of Jammu and Kashmir's special status under Article 370 on August 5.
