Pakistan Military has given an effective response to India: COAS
*ISLAMABAD: Asserting Pakistan’s complete preparedness to defend its motherland, Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa said on Wednesday that Pakistan had given an effective response to India.*
Briefing the participants of an in-camera session called to brief parliamentary leaders over rising tension with India, the COAS said none of the Pakistani jets violated the Line of Control (LoC).
The meeting was held to brief parliamentary leaders in the wake of Pakistan’s retaliation to airspace violation by India.
The army chief told the participants that Pakistan shot down Indian planes because they violated aerial boundaries of our country. One Indian aircraft was down inside Pakistan’s territory, while the other was leveled in the occupied-Kashmir, he added.
“The prime minister once again invited India for peace talks and India must reciprocate it wisely”, he continued. The COAS, however, stated that there were suspicions that India may ‘do something’ [in reaction].
He thanked the political parties for standing shoulder-to-shoulder with the Pakistan Army.
