ISLAMABAD: Pakistan is not looking at a military option over Kashmir, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said on Thursday, after India stripped Occupied Kashmir of its special autonomy.

However, Pakistan reserves the right to respond to any Indian aggression, Qureshi told a news conference in Islamabad.

“We’re not looking at military option,” Qureshi said, adding, “Don’t we reserve a right to respond in case of any aggression?”
