Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that Pakistan is resolute and unwavering in its commitment to the nation’s security.
Pakistan is celebrating the third anniversary of “Operation Swift Retort,” when the country’s air force shot down two intruding Indian jets in Azad Jammu and Kashmir on February 27, 2019.
Indian pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman’s MiG-21 plane was shot down in an aerial dogfight in Azad Jammu Kashmir, while the Indian pilot was arrested.
Taking to Twitter, PM Imran said that he has always believed in finding solutions to conflicts peacefully through dialogue and diplomacy.
However, the premier warned that these traits should not be deemed Pakistan’s weakness by anyone, as he referred to how the country foiled the Indian air force’s transgression of Pakistani airspace on February 27, 2019.
PM Imran said that the “armed forces of Pakistan, who are backed by the nation, will always respond to any kind of aggression directed towards the country.”
“I have always believed in conflict resolution through dialogue & diplomacy. That should never be taken as a sign of weakness. As we showed India on 27 Feb, 2019, when it chose to attack us, our armed forces backed by the nation will respond to mly aggression & prevail at all levels,” the prime minister wrote.
“We are resolute & unwavering in our commitment to the security of our country and our nation,” he added in a separate Tweet.
