India’s army chief also criticized Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech at the UN General Assembly. In his speech, Imran Khan said there can be a threat of nuclear war between the two nuclear powers.
He said “I do not understand whether they are talking about using nuclear weapons in conventional war or if only they are attacked? Will the international community ever allow you to use such a nuclear weapon? Pakistan’s statements show that they lack understanding with regard to the use of strategic weapons. ”
