Nisar, who met with British Prime Minister Theresa May during a meeting with National Security Adviser (NSA) Sir Mark Lyall Grant at 10 Downing Street, insisted that Pakistan reserves the right to avenge the blatant and unprovoked killing of its soldiers.

"India's hegemonic stance and its aggressive posturing was a threat to peace and stability in the region," ARY News quoted Nisar as saying.

He stated that Pakistan would not be cowed down by such tactics, and reserves the right to avenge the blatant and unprovoked killing of its soldiers.

Nisar said the international community, particularly our friends, should focus and react to the Indian "intransigence" in the region.

He said that "the world and our friends needed to do more to counter Indian designs against Pakistan and should stop seeing South Asia through the Indian prism".

While discussing the ongoing war against terrorism, Nisar said that menace of terrorism was a threat to the region and the international peace and tranquility.

He said that people of Pakistan and its national security institutions were determined to completely wipe out terrorism from its soil.

May conveyed her good wishes to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and the people of Pakistan and said that she was looking forward to visiting Pakistan in the first half of 2017.
