ISLAMABAD, Pakistan (Reuters) - President Pervez Musharraf on Monday threatened to teach arch-rival India a lesson if it attacked across their disputed border in Kashmir.
In an interview with state-run Pakistan Television, he said Indian leaders are not to hurl threats of attacks across the military Line of Control in the disputed Himalayan region and (should instead) follow the path of dialogue to settle the Kashmir dispute.
Musharraf said Pakistan would not let India take a military advantage in Kashmir from of the current Afghan crisis, and added: ``Armed forces are fully prepared, not only defensively but we will teach them a lesson if at all they try to do anything.''
