Wing Commander Abhinandhan Vardhaman will be released tomorrow “as a peace gesture”, Dawn quotes Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan telling a joint session of Parliament.
Mr. Khan has also cautioned that the situation should not “get out of hand” otherwise “Pakistan will have to retaliate”.
Mr. Khan also reiterates that talks over Kashmir are important. "I have a feeling that the Indian public does not agree with the current government's warmongering. If their media had seen what our media has seen over the past 17 years, they would not have created this war hysteria."
