Pakistan will consider all available options to retaliate for the Indian government’s decision to withdraw the Most Favoured Nation status, Prime Minister Imran Khan's Advisor on Commerce Razak Dawood has said.

India withdrew the MFN status it gave to Pakistan in 1996 following the February 14 militant attack in Kashmir's Pulwama district that claimed the lives of 49 CRPF troopers.

Dawood said that Pakistan might take unilateral measures against India or revoke concessions under the South Asia Preferential Trade Agreement (Sapta) and might take up the issue in the Geneva-based World Trade Organisation.

"We would not overreact... We would take action with great care," he added.
