All three nations are well equipped with nuclear weapons. Still they challenge each other power and break the border rules. This the main cause of tension not only for the three nations but for Asia and the world at large.
This was followed by a surgical strike that attacked the four terrorist headquarters based in Pakistan. The Pulwama attack was the next inline killing forty CRPF Indian soldiers. India then retaliated with air strike.
