Pakistan shares a 900-kilometre border with Iran and the two countries in 2014 decided to boost intelligence coordination to wipe out terrorists from the border region. However, Iran has violated border treaty many times. Pakistan has taken up the issue with Iranian officials in Joint Pak-Iran Border Session.

    Call it India’s surgical strike if that’s what makes you happy but truth is it’s not possible for India to conduct surgical strikes in Pakistan unless you are ready to go to war.Recommend
