AJK President Masood Khan has warned that a deteriorating security situation in the disputed Kashmir region has the potential to escalate into a nuclear conflict between India and Pakistan.

In an interview with Newsweek, he urged the United Nations and the world community to deal with the crisis.

AJK President said we have beefed up security, we remain vigilant and India with its aggressive steps has pushed the region to the brink of war.

Masood Khan said we are in a state of war right now, but the situation could escalate even further. Any military exchange will not remain limited, it can and we fear it would escalate to the nuclear level, that is tantamount to nuclear armageddon.
