Don't take our peaceful intent for weakness: Pak PM

 Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has warned India not to take Pakistan's peaceful intent  as “weakness”.

 
Minutes after India announced that it carried out surgical strikes across the LoC on Wednesday night, Sharif denounced calling it an "unprovoked and naked aggression" by Indian forces.
 
Radio Pakistan quoted him as saying that the Indian operation led to the death of two Pakistani soldiers.
 
"Our intent for peaceful neighbourhood should not be mistaken as our weakness as our valiant forces are fully capable of defending the territorial integrity of our country," the Prime Minister said.
 
He added that Pakistan can "thwart any evil design made to undermine the sovereignty of Pakistan".
