    The meeting will be attended by former secretaries and senior ambassadors and will discuss the security situation, reported Pakistan’s DAWN newspaper.

    Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Tuesday that "better sense" should prevail in India after Indian jets crossed into Pakistan and carried out what one Indian minister called an airstrike on militant terror camps.
    Qureshi warned India not to challenge Pakistan and said "better sense should prevail in India", according to a statement cited by state-run Radio Pakistan.
    "The Foreign Minister said the nation should not be worried over the Indian act as the defenders of the country are fully prepared to respond to any misadventure," Radio Pakistan added on its website.
    In an operation that took place at around 3.30 am on Tuesday, the Indian Air Force destroyed Jaish-e-Mohammed's camps across the Line of Control (LoC), ANI said quoting sources.
    12 Mirage 2000 Indian Fighter jets dropped 1,000 kg of bombs on the said terror camps, the news agency reported, adding, the casualties from the operation stood between 200 and 300.
    Foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale, in a media briefing, confirmed reports and said India struck the biggest training camp of Jaish-e-Mohammad in Balakot, Pakistan.
