"The only foreign war Pakistan is fighting is the US-backed war against terror in Afghanistan", said journalist Mubashir Ahmed based in Lahore.

Two days after US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's brief visit to Islamabad, Pakistan's new Prime Minister Imran Khan said his country would not fight 'anyone else's war'.

But later, Khan made it clear that Pakistan would stick to its stand on Kashmir as the core agenda of talks if they were to resume - a point that India is not ready to debate.

In his address to nation on Friday, Imran Khan applauded Chief Justice of Pakistan, Justice Mian Saqib Nisar for launching dams funds in Pakistan.

Khan also praised the Pakistani armed forces for combating terrorism.

"The government will bring meritocracy and transparency in all sectors by following the golden principles of state of Medina", he said.

The CJP, who will retire in four months, said he will take up the work of guarding the dam after retirement and if need be will set up a hut and start living there.

Raising objections to Pakistan Army Chief General Javed Bajwa's remarks on Jammu and Kashmir, Shiva Sena leader Sanjay Raut on Saturday hit out at the Narendra Modi-led government over its stance on the neighbouring country, saying India must respond with bullets and not talks.

He said Pakistan had paid a huge cost for its war of terrorism.

Bajwa said after making the defence strong, it is high time now to wage war against hunger and poverty.

Prime Minister Imran Khan will be the chief guest at the event.

"Pakistan believed in peaceful coexistence and wanted to promote mutual cooperation with all its neighbours and the entire world on equal basis", he said.

"The resolution of Kashmir issue according to the United Nations resolutions was indispensable", he said. The day dawned with 31 gun salute in the country's capital and 21 gun salute in provincial capitals. The day, originally called Martyrs' Day to pay tribute to its soldiers on the 53rd anniversary of the 1965 war with India, was renamed as Defence Day in 2014.
