Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday reiterated his request for talks on terror with India even as he claimed that his forces shot down two MiG 21s this morning after they intruded into Pak air space.
In a televised message to India, Pakistan PM said that the two countries should sit down for talks as better sense must prevail. "If a war takes place, it will not be in my or Narendra Modi's control. If you want any kind of talks on terrorism, we are ready. Better sense must prevail. We should sit down and talk," Imran Khan said.
Hinting at the possible eventuality of the nulcear war, the Pak PM said that the two nations may not be able to afford to tread that path. "All wars in world history have been miscalculated, those who started the wars did not know where it will end. So, I want to ask India, with the weapons you and we have, can we afford miscalculation?" he added.
The Indian government has claimed that one MiG 21 plane crashed this morning after it was reacting to LoC intrusion by one Pakistan F-16 jet. While Pakistani jet was shot down, India lost its MiG 21 as well. The whereabouts of the pilot are unknown for now. Pakistan has claimed that they have two Indian pilots in custody, while India says only one is missing in action.
