India Will Use All Its Might To Protect Its Sovereignty: President Kovind

President Ram Nath Kovind said India will use all its might to protect the nation's sovereignty while referring to the Indian Air Force strikes in Pakistan following the Pulwama terror attack on Feb. 14.

Addressing a function here, the President said India's growing stature in the comity of nations is consistent with the strength and capabilities of its armed forces.

India remains firmly committed to peace, but in case the need arises, we will use all our might to protect the nation’s sovereignty. I am confident that our valiant men and women in uniform will rise to the occasion.

He said the country's armed forces, exemplified by the air warriors, "reflect our firm resolve to defend our nation".

"Their valour and professionalism was on display very recently, as the Indian Air Force carried out pre-emptive strikes on a known terrorist camp," the president said.

The Indian Air Force had on Feb. 26 carried out strikes in terror camps of proscribed organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed in Pakistan.
