Absolutely untrue. All network splits are hard forks, but most hard forks are not network splits.

You seem to be misinformed of the differences of hard forks and network splits. Here is a good starting place for understanding: https://medium.com/@alpalpalp/chain-splits-and-resolutions-d3398bddf4ab A soft fork vs. hard for refers to compatibility with previous rules. A chain split can occur in any case, although a successful soft fork will resolve the chain split. A successful hard fork only happens when there is a permanent chain split.
