He added that there was less possibility of a conventional war with India. Imran Khan Warns World of India-Pakistan Nuclear War if Kashmir Issue Remains Ignored.

This is not the first time Rasheed threatened India. After India withdrew Jammu and Kashmir's special status, granted under Article 370, in August last year, Rasheed said that a full-fledged war will be fought between India and Pakistan. "The time of the last battle for the liberation of Kashmir has arrived and this time the war with India will be full and final," he had said.
Prior to this statement, Rasheed had said that the war would not be one between just India and Pakistan but will encompass the whole of the Indian subcontinent. After India conducted airstrike at terror camps in Balakot, the Pakistani minister had said that any conflict between India and Pakistan will be "more horrific than the World War".
