Nervous and cornered in the international community with India’s hardened response after the Uri attack, Pakistan led by Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif is now bracing up for a strike by Indian Armed forces, according to TV reports. As many as 18 Indian soldiers were killed by four Pakistani terrorists in an attack at the crack of the dawn at Uri in Kashmir on Sunday. India Today TV reported that “nervous” Pakistan is expecting a retaliatory strike by India and the country is preparing for the war. According to the news channel, Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif spoke over the phone with the army chief of the country, General Raheel Sharif in this regard. Nawaz told the army chief that he is expecting an attack by India and asked him to “respond with full force.”

Sharif is in New York attending the 71st session of the United Nations General Assembly session.  Reports suggest that the conversation was the first between the two since Sunday’s terror attack in Jammu and Kashmir’s Uri region, in which 18 Indian Army soldiers lost their lives.

Sharif would today deliver a speech at the UNGA in which he is likely to focus on the Kashmir issue.  According to sources, India would also raise the Uri attack and highlight Pakistan’s alleged involvement in the dastardly terror attack. According to sources, India’s External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj will strongly emphasise on Pakistan’s involvement in her speech on September 26.

Yesterday, United States of America President Barack Obama took an indirect dig at Pakistan for sponsoring terrorism and being engaged in a proxy war with India. Speaking at the 71st UN General Assembly session, Obama said that nations engaged in “proxy wars” should end them. If not, he warned the “embers of extremism will continue to burn” causing sufferings to countless human beings and export of extremism overseas, PTI reported. This was Obama’s eighth and final address to the UN General Assembly as the President of United States of America.
