PM Imran Khan offers India for a dialogue
ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has once again offered PM Narendra Modi for a dialogue after Pakistani Air Force shot down two Indian fighter jets.
In his address televised nationally, the PM said India should think where they want to take this situation.
Calling Pulwama attack a tragedy, the premier said he fully understands the pain of victims as he himself has witnessed the destruction of war.
“We had offered India for a joint probe into the Pulwama attack because it is not in Pakistan’s interest that our soil is used against any country.”
While, we honestly offered to investigate the incident, India acted immaturely, he said.
“Despite my sincere offer, I had doubt that India might take some action due to upcoming elections.”
“When India launched action, we did not respond then because we wanted to fully review the situation on ground.”
“We launched strike because we just wanted to send a message that Pakistan is a sovereign country and can enter India,” the PM said.
“I am addressing the Indians now. No one knows where the war can lead. Slight miscalculation can lead to disaster,” he added.
My question is to Indian government: The sort of weapons that we both have can we afford escalation?
Better sense should prevail in India, he said in the end.
