Karachi: Pakistan naval chief Admiral Muhammad Zakaullah on Thursday termed as “unusual” the alleged effort by an Indian submarine to enter into its territorial waters and warned of retaliation if such effort was made again.
“If India does something like this again, Pakistan Navy will respond to protect our sovereignty,” he said, speaking on the sidelines of the ninth International Defence Exhibition in Karachi.
Pakistan Navy last week claimed that an Indian submarine was pushed back after being detected near its territorial waters.
India, however, strongly dismissed the charge as “blatant lies”, saying the Indian Navy did not have any under water movement in the said waters as claimed by the Pakistani Navy.
