Farooq warns Pakistan Against Annexing Territory

31st May 1998

Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Farooq Abdullah today said, Pakistan, despite having acquired nuclear capability, should give up any plans of annexing even an inch of India's territory.

"Having acquired the nuclear capability, it would be wrong for Pakistan to even dream about annexing Kashmir," the Chief Minister told a conference on panchayati raj in the State, being organised by the Institute of Social Sciences, New Delhi.

"Islamabad is destined to fail in her machinations though it has now gone nuclear," Abdullah said in his first reaction to Pakistan's nuclear tests.
