Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Wednesday said there was no possibility of Pakistan winning any war against India in his "lifetime".

"There is no scope of Pakistan winning any such war in my lifetime," he told reporters.

He was reacting to a reported statement of Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in a daily newspaper that Kashmir is a flash point which "can trigger a fourth war" with India.

The reported statement was published in an influential daily of Pakistan, which has since been denied. Sharif's office said he had never "uttered these words" in his address to the Pak-occupied Kashmir Council and described the report as "baseless, incorrect and based on malafide intentions".

His office also said that Sharif was of the opinion that any issue of conflict between Pakistan and India has to be resolved through peaceful means.
