“Modi’s India” May Counter Pakistan’s Challenge Strongly: US Report | India News


WASHINGTON: India, under Prime Minister Narendra Modi, is more likely than in the past to respond with military force to actual or perceived Pakistani provocations, the US intelligence community told Congress in a report.
The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) in its Annual Threat Assessment report to the US Congress, said that although a general war between India and Pakistan is unlikely, it is likely that crises between the two will be become more intense, with the risk of a staggered cycle.
“… Rising tensions increase the risk of conflict between the two nuclear-armed neighbors, with violent riots in Kashmir or an attack by militants in India as potential hotbeds,” the report said.
India and Pakistan lack high commissioners in each other’s capitals since relations between the two countries plummeted after India withdrew its special status from J&K in 2019. India has said it wishes normal neighborly relations with Pakistan in an environment free from terror and violence.
