Iran’s defense minister has vowed that his country would not set any limits on using its capabilities against enemies, whenever necessary. This he said a day after Iran launched missile strikes in Pakistan.
Repprtedly, strikes have raised tensions in a region where conflict has now touched at least five nations.
In a statement, Pakistan, said it reserves the right to respond to what it called an illegal and unprovoked attack. Pakistan also expelled Iranian ambassador to Islamabad and recalled its own ambassador from Iran. But retaliation could risk drawing Pakistan, which is already mired in political and economic crisis, into Middle East upheaval that it has so far avoided.
