NEW DELHI - Despite having state of the art fighter jets, India cries before US after thrashed by PAF over the alleged use of the F - 16 fighter jets.
India has given so called proof to the US about the use of F-16 fighters and AMRAAM beyond visual range air-to-air missile by Pakistan during its encounter with the IAf on February 27, official sources said Tuesday.
As part of the purchasing agreement, the US had put restrictions, the US had reportedly barred Pakistan from using the F-16s against any third country and it was only allowed to operate the fighter in self defence and for anti-terror missions.
The US is "very closely" following the reports which have claimed that Pakistan used American-made F-16 fighter jets against India in the recent aerial confrontation between the air forces of the two countries, a top State Department official has said.
The US State Department has said that America is seeking more information from Pakistan on the potential misuse of American-made F-16 fighter jets by it against India in violation of the end-user agreement.
