Our entire defence mechanism is India-specific, says top Pakistani military official

New Delhi: Pakistan's "entire defence mechanism is India-specific" as it poses a threat from the neighbouring nation, the country's Director-General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Asim Bajwa has said.

Despite ongoing diplomatic and political efforts to engage India and a positive trajectory in Indo-Pak relations, "there is one major cause of tension between the two countries and that is the long-standing issue of Kashmir", Dawn quoted Bajwa as saying.

Referring to the ongoing anti-terror operations in the country, he said that the “world has abandoned Pakistan to face terrorists alone”.

"For the world to say Pakistan has not done enough in the war on terror is discrimination. It's unfair and I take it as quite an injustice to Pakistan. Pakistan has done a lot in the war against terrorism and for peace in the world," he said in an interview with Deutsche Welle Urdu.

"The world had abandoned Pakistan to handle and face the terrorists in the region alone, and Pakistan has completed the task," he said.
