The Kashmir dispute has already triggered two wars between India and Pakistan, and their militaries regularly trade fire across the Kashmir border, known as the Line of Control.

India flooded the Kashmir valley with troops, restricted movements and cut off communication as Prime Minister Narendra Modi withdrew special rights for Kashmir on August 5.

The main focus was on the situation arising from India's illegal and unilateral actions in Indian occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IOJ&K). -Gen. Asif Ghafoor told a news conference in Islamabad. He reiterated Pakistan's stated stance that its nuclear weapons are for deference.
