Pak NSC decides to review diplomatic ties with India: Report

Islamabad, Aug 7 (IANS) The National Security Committee (NSC) being chaired by Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday decided to review diplomatic ties with India after the latter ended special status for Jammu and Kashmir by scrapping Articles 35A and 370 of its Constitution, the media reported.

Pakistan's Dunya News TV channel cited sources as saying that the NSC, in the second such session within a week, is deliberating sealing the Wagah border and also to end trade and cultural ties with New Delhi.

The second session of the NSC is being attended by Pakistan's civil-military leadership to analyze situation in Kashmir.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Imran Khan, addressing a joint session of the National Assembly, had said that Pulwama-like attacks can follow the revocation of the special status for Jammu and Kashmir, which can lead to a war between India and Pakistan.

"I can already predict this will happen. They will attempt to place the blame on us again. They may strike us again, and we will strike back," the cricketer-turned-politician told his country's Parliament.

Slamming the repeal of special status to Jammu and Kashmir, Khan had called on the world to raise its voice "for the people of Indian-Administered Kashmir".

The last NSC meeting was held on August 4 to discuss India's "use of cluster ammunition to target the civilian population on the Pakistani side of Kashmir".
