ISLMABAD: The Senate’s Standing Committee on Defense said on Tuesday that the US will never dare to attack Pakistan, however Pakistan is fully capable to retaliate if ever necessary, DawnNews reported.

The committee also supported the decision to call an All Parties Conference.

After the meeting of the defense committee, Lieutenant General (R) Javed Ashraf Qazi told the media that the committee condemned all the allegations made by the US against Pakistan and was seriously considering all the threats given by them.

The committee also urged the foreign office to send delegations to the ally states for confidence building measures.

Qazi also stated that the US pledged to give aid to Pakistan, however the assistance was not provided as promised. He said that the US did not give Pakistan the military equipment as pledged either.

The committee said that blaming Pakistan will ultimately only end up helping the terrorists while the differences could only be resolved through dialogue.
