United States seeks information on potential misuse of F-16 by Pakistan

Realising the sensitivity of the situation, Prime Minister Imran Khan reiterated that Pakistan will not allow its soil to be used by any militant organisation for cross-border terrorism and that Islamabad is ready to act against any such organisation if New Delhi provides any actionable evidence.

Qureshi, in Geo News" transmission "Jang Nahi Amn', said that the United States, United Kingdom, European Union, Russia, China and Turkey want to deescalate the border tensions between Pakistan and India.

Due to political compulsions and election winning factor, Indian government authorised its air force to conduct surgical strikes across the Line of Control to destroy what they called the terrorist training camps. Flight operations at Lahore's worldwide airport will resume after they were suspended on February 27, Pakistan's Civil Aviation Authority said on its website. What is their fault?

This latest wave of tensions between the two rivals first began after the militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing on Indian paramilitary forces. The children's father was critically wounded.

The two South Asian nations have fought three wars in 1948, 1965 and 1971 - two of them over Kashmir - since they were partitioned in 1947.

Prime Minister Imran apprised the British premier of Pakistan's perspective on the developments since the Pulwama incident, in which almost four dozen Indian soldiers were killed when a young Kashmiri drove a vehicle full of explosives into a military convoy in the Indian Occupied Kashmir district on February 14.

In a sign of improvement in ties, Pakistan's minister for railways, Sheikh Rashid Ahmed, told reporters Saturday that the Samjhauta Express train service linking the Pakistani city of Lahore with the Indian border town of Atari would resume on Monday.

Pakistan retaliated, shooting down a fighter jet on Wednesday and detaining its pilot, who was returned to India on Friday in a peace gesture.

Pakistan said the Indian bombs hit a largely empty hillside without hurting anyone.

The US Embassy in Islamabad said on Sunday it was looking into reports that Pakistan used F-16 jets to shoot down the Indian pilot, a potential violation of Washington's military sale agreements that limit how Pakistan can use the planes. "We reaffirm that Jammu and Kashmir is an integral part of India and is a matter strictly internal to India", spokesperson for the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) Raveesh Kumar said.

"We did not know whether we will get any shelter and how could we take our animals" with us, he said.

A Central Reserve Police Force official said two members of the force were killed during an encounter that has lasted more than 48 hours.

Rebel groups have been fighting Indian rule since 1989 and demand that Kashmir be united either under Pakistani rule or as an independent country.
