As Pakistan Airforce grandstands about war preparedness, its foreign minister asked by Japan to cancel scheduled visit

Japan has reportedly asked Qureshi to stay in his country and engage in active diplomacy to reduce tension with India.

Amidst the environment of high tension between India and Pakistan after the Pulwama attack that killed 40 Indian soldiers, Pakistan has been displaying a wide variety of emotions.

Pakistan’s PM Imran Khan first released a highly edited video making tall claims and boasting bravado against India, then there were reports of its military mobilising troops, readying hospitals and evacuating villages along the LoC. Pakistani media has also been providing generous doses of entertainment for Indians with their dramatic and innovative ways of ‘warning’ India.

As per reports, the Pakistan Air Force has now also joined in with its army to display their expertise and boast of its ‘preparedness’ and expertise to thwart any ‘misadventure’.

Pakistan’s air chief marshal Mujahid Anwar Khan reportedly visited the forward airforce bases and interacted with the combat crew. He said, “We are a peace-loving nation but if war is imposed on us we will defend the aerial frontiers of our motherland at every cost.”

Khan stated that the PAF will thwart any misadventure by the enemy and is ready to respond with full force as per the aspirations of the nation.

It is notable here that recently, Pakistanis along the Sialkot base had panicked when one of their own jets was flying low during a practice session. They had assumed it as an attack from India.

In another development, it is reported that Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has ‘postponed’ his visit to Japan scheduled this month after Japan’s suggestion.

As per a report in WION, Japan had asked Qureshi to reconsider his visit in view of the current India-Pakistan tension after the Pulwama attack. Japan has reportedly asked Qureshi to stay in his country and engage in active diplomacy to reduce tension with India. Qureshi was scheduled to depart yesterday.

Adding another example to the rapid mood swings of his nation, Imran Khan, after PM Modi’s speech recently where he had announced that this time, all scores will be settled, has released a statement. Khan has stated that Pakistan is ready to act on ‘actionable intelligence’ provided by India and has asked PM Modi to ‘give peace a chance’.
