Pakistan PM calls for dialogue with India after jets shot down

Posted March 01, 2019

India's External Affairs Ministry spokesman, Raveesh Kumar, said one of India's MiG-21 fighter aircraft was missing and India was still "ascertaining" whether its pilot was in Pakistan's custody.

"Srinagar, Jammu and Leh airports were among five airports closed on Wednesday for civilian air traffic shortly after an IAF [Indian Air Force] jet crashed in Kashmir's Budgam district", the Press Trust of India, a news agency reported.

Announcing that a Pakistani warplane downed Wednesday had targeted military sites, India's air force, navy and army declared they're on high alert and are poised to defeat further threats.

"India should not carry any further violence in Pakistan because its continuation will affect regional security also the continuation of such conflict will cost a lot for India", Taliban spokesman Zabiullah Mujahid said in a statement.

Pakistan denies this, saying the attack was a failure and no one died, with bombs dropped on a largely empty hillside.

Those strikes came a day after Indian warplanes struck inside Pakistan for the first time since a war in 1971.

He said: "We are willing to return the captured Indian pilot if it leads to de-escalation".

"The Pakistani aircraft was seen by ground forces falling from the sky on the Pakistan side", he told a briefing.

"You can't overfly China, so you have to overfly Pakistan and India and go to Southeast Asia and Australia". At least six airports were shuttered in India, and a vast area of airspace north of New Delhi was closed to civilian flights. An Indian military statement said that "out of anger and frustration", Pakistan "initiated unprovoked cease-fire violation". It accused Pakistani soldiers of firing mortars and missiles "from civilian houses, using villagers as human shields".

"Pakistan does not want to go for war, our message is peace".

The situation between India and Pakistan continues to be tense.

"Following the Pulwama terrorist attack, instead of taking seriously the calls by global community to act against Jaish-e-Mohammad and other terror groups based in Pakistan, it denied any knowledge of the attack and dismissed outright claims by JeM", she said.

The latest wave of tensions between Pakistan and India first erupted after Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for the February 14 suicide bombing of a convoy of India's paramilitary forces in the Indian portion of Kashmir that killed 40 Indian troops.
