Asked what if India undertakes any misadventure against Pakistan, he said, "Well, it is up to them and if they wish to test our resolve they may try and see it for themselves".

Asif overtly stated that Pakistan has maintained nuclear arsenal to deal with threats emanating from its eastern border. "Pakistan has demonstrated deterrence capability", he wrote on his personal Twitter account.
