Upon probing for further information, the pilot refuses to speak saying, “I am sorry sir, that’s all I am supposed to tell you.”

“Pakistan armed forces have the capability and resolve to defend its interest. But we are a responsible nation and want peace. This morning we decided that we will not attack any military targets. We decided that no human life should be endangered in our strikes,” Ghafoor said.
