Nation stands firm, united with armed forces against any aggression: Sarwar
LAHORE: Governor Punjab Chaudhry Mohammad Sarwar on Tuesday urged the United Nations (UN) to take notice of Line of Control (LoC) violation by Indian aircrafts, ARY News reported.
Indian military aircraft violated the Line of Control (LoC) as they “intruded” from the Muzafarabad sector and were forced to return owing to the timely response of the Pakistan Air Force (PAF).
Reacting strong over Indian violation of Pakistani airspace, the governor in his statement issued, here today, called on the United Nations to intervene into the matter and restrain India from any aggression against Pakistan.
Commenting on prompt response by Pakistan, Mr Sarwar said, “The PAF always foil heinous designs of the enemies of the motherland.”
The whole nation is standing firm and united with the armed forces.
Reacting over violation by Indian aircraft, Qureshi said the BJP government wanted to destabilise the region due to upcoming polls in India.
