INDIAN Army Chief General Bipin Rawat's statement on Friday that his country will handle China's growing assertiveness and has stepped up patrols on their disputed border to head off more standoffs is yet another manifestation of New Delhi's aggressive and provocative posture.

"There are two flags in the state, we have J&K constitution and India's constitution also".

Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said that India may test Pakistan's resolve if that is what it wishes to do.

Pakistan's Foreign Office called the Indian army chief's statement the representation of a sinister mindset that has taken hold of India.

Pakistan Army spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor warned of response if India undertook any misadventure.

He was responding to a question during a press conference on the possibility of Pakistan using its nuclear weapons in case the situation along the border deteriorates. "We will have to call their nuclear bluff", Gen Rawat was quoted as saying.

"Separatism would not be anywhere" if army does its job well, he said.

"Perhaps he (Army chief) knows it and I know it very well", he said. "The general's doubt would swiftly be removed, inshallah", he said on Twitter.

Scrapping the Iran deal will only harm America's international interests
JCPOA is not renegotiable: rather than repeating exhausted rhetoric, USA must bring itself into full compliance -just like Iran. As CNBC put it in a report earlier in the week, this presents Trump with multiple opportunities to scrap the nuclear deal.

Explaining the difficulties faced in conducting operations in South Kashmir, the Army chief said all the four districts of this region are urbanised.
