The Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan Niazi accused the Indian Prime Minister that he and his party is whipping up war hysteria as they are claiming that they down an F-16 Pakistani aircraft in February as a standoff. Furthermore, he said that truth is always the best policy and there is not any truth in the Indian claim. United States-based Foreign Policy magazine stated that Pakistan’s all F-16 fighting aircrafts had accounted for, opposing the assessment of Air Force of India that they target down one of the jets.
However, the Pakistani PM Khan tweeted that “The truth always conquers and it is always the best policy.” Moreover, he expressed that the Bharatiya Janata Party is trying to win the elections with the help of war hysteria and doing wrong claims of hitting down a Pakistani F-16. On the other side Defense officials of the United States supports the Khan’s argument and confirms that not a single F-16 missing from Pakistani fleet. Earlier, two neighboring nuclear powers trapped in an aerial fight on the Kashmir dispute after the border crossing of Indian jets in the Pakistani territory.
During this battle, Pakistani jets hit down an Indian aircraft and captured its pilot under their custody. But after the announcement of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan to create a peaceful atmosphere between India and Pakistan, they handover that pilot to Indian officials without any conditions. After the release of the pilot from the Pakistani side, the environment of nuclear war between the two countries little bit vanishes.
