According to ANI news reports, the meeting which will be consist of Islamabad’s defence and foreign ministry officials has come to few hours after the Pakistani army has confirmed that Indian aircraft has penetrated the LoC and also dropped 1000 explosives “payloads” in the region.

After the completion of the meeting, Islamabad foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi was expected to address the media. Also, earlier the day, the Pakistani foreign minister has convened an emergency meeting at the office in Islamabad in order to discuss the situation.

During the meeting, Qureshi said: “I have already said that I don’t want to mislead the public, clouds of danger are hovering over us, and we will have to remain alert,” according to Samaa TV.

Stunned by India’s surgical strike in PoK on February 26, Pakistan has on Tuesday said it will soon retaliate to India’s action with an “appropriate reply”, which it has described as “grave aggression”.

Qureshi said the “pre-emptive” strikes by the Indian Air Force had become necessary as there was information that JeM had carried out suicide bombing attacks – Pulwama terror attack – in Jammu and Kashmir on Indian CRPF on February 14.
