PM Narendra Modi has said that soldiers have the full freedom to respond to attacks in whichever way they deem fit. In an interview to Times Now, PM Modi said, “We are very proud of our Jawans for their courage. They are courageously foiling attacks by terrorists.”
“There is more pressure on terrorists since our soldiers are foiling entry bid. Those who are at the border are doing their duty, those at the Centre will continue to do theirs,” Modi said.
“India wants to be friends with its neighbors without compromising on our interests and rights. We want to live in peace, that is the supreme objective,” PM said. “India and Pakistan both have to fight poverty, we can fight it together, I have said this time and again,” he added.

PM Modi said that Pakistan is finding it increasingly difficult to give answers for its policies on the global stage. “All the steps that I have taken, be it going to Lahore or calling Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif, all of them have ensured that the world is standing with India with regards to our policy on Pakistan,” PM Modi said.
“Had we created obstacles in the path to talks with Pakistan, the world would have questioned us. Now everyone is asking Pakistan, and Pakistan is finding it increasingly difficult to give answers. The world is unanimously appreciating India’s position on Pakistan,” Modi said.
