Latest news: Imran Khan convenes Nuclear Command Authority in response to Indian attacks

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan convened an urgent meeting of national security chiefs and condemned the “irresponsible Indian policy”.

Mr Khan has summoned a special meeting of the National Command Authority (NCA) – the body that oversees Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal.

India says it launched air strikes against militants in Pakistani territory, in a major escalation of tensions between the two countries.

The government said strikes targeted a training camp of the Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) group in Balakot.

Prime Minister Imran Khan said “Once again [the] Indian government has resorted to a self-serving, reckless and fictitious claim,” a statement issued after the meeting said. “This action has been done for domestic consumption, being in an election environment, putting regional peace and stability at grave risk.”

The government called a joint session of parliament for Wednesday to give a unified response to the “violation” of the line of control.

Mr Khan has summoned a special meeting of the National Command Authority (NCA) – the body that oversees Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal.

Relations between the nuclear-armed neighbours have been strained since a suicide attack earlier this month that killed more than 40 Indian troops.
