We responded with determined resolve at a time and place of our choosing, the Prime Minister Imran Khan has said, adding that we also demonstrated to the world Pakistan’s responsible behaviour in the face of India’s irresponsible military brinkmanship, by returning the captured Indian pilot.

According to details, the Prime Minister has made these remarks in a statement on social networking website Twitter on 2nd anniversary of Operation Swift Retort on Saturday.

In a series of tweets, saluting the Armed Forces of Pakistan, the Premier has congratulated the entire nation on the 2nd Anniversary of our response to India’s illegal, reckless military adventure of air strikes against Pakistan on this day in 2019.

The Prime Minister said we have always stood for peace and remain ready to move forward to resolve all outstanding issues through dialogue.

Imran Khan also welcomed the restoration of the ceasefire along the Line of Control and said the onus of creating an enabling environment for further progress rests with India.

“India must take necessary steps to meet the long-standing demand and right of the Kashmiri people to self-determination according to United Nations Security Council resolutions,” he added.
