A special meeting of the National Security Committee chaired by Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in Islamabad on Tuesday resolved that India has committed uncalled aggression to which Pakistan will respond at the time and place of its choosing.

“India has conducted a violation of the Line of Control (LoC) and Pakistan reserves the right to an appropriate response,” said Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi.

Pakistan complains that the Indian Air Force (IAF) had violated the LoC in the wee hours of Tuesday to bomb the Pakistan territory with the unsubstantiated excuse that Pakistan was behind terrorism in India.

Meanwhile, the U.S. Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo has urged both the enemy countries to exercise restraint. In a statement released Tuesday by the Department of State, Pompeo said that he has spoken with Indian Minister of External Affairs Sushma Swaraj and Pakistani Foreign Minister Qureshi on this issue.

“I expressed to both Ministers that we encourage India and Pakistan to exercise restraint, and avoid escalation at any cost. I also encouraged both Ministers to prioritize direct communication and avoid further military activity,” Pompeo added in the statement.
