A day after mellowed reaction from the Foreign Office calling as regretful Modi's remarks that Pakistan was creating disturbance and instigating terrorism in India, Pakistan Prime Minister's Advisor on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz stepped up the attack on India in a speech in Parliament.

He said his country will take all steps to 'expose' India's role in the break up of East Pakistan in 1971 and to 'destabilise' it through terrorism.

Addressing the Senate, Aziz said Islamabad has already taken "strong notice" of Prime Minister Modi's statement 'acknowledging' India's "intervention" in events of 1971.

"Pakistan will take all possible steps to expose India's role in the breakup of East Pakistan in 1971 and its threat to destabilise Pakistan through terrorism," he alleged.

While chairing the Formation Commanders Conference in Rawalpindi comprising top military commanders, Army Chief Raheel Sharif pledged to foil any "evil" designs against the country.

The forum took "serious notice of recent Indian hostile rhetoric coupled with their covert & overt actions to destabilise Pak", Military spokesman Major General Asim Saleem Bajwa said in one of seven tweets regarding the conference.
