It is pertinent here to mention that Pakistan adopted a controlled policy of responding to the Indian aggression and incursion in the country's airspace.

Modi also said India will fight, live, work and win as one and nobody can create hurdles in its march towards development. We want the pilot back. "As a peace gesture, we have chose to release the Indian pilot in our custody", Khan told a joint session of parliament in Islamabad called to discuss the India-Pakistan situation.

He spoke a day after the pilot, Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman, was captured on Wednesday following a rare aerial engagement between the South Asian neighbours over the disputed region of Kashmir.

Imran Khan on Thursday had announced that the captured pilot will be released on Friday as a gesture of peace and the "first step" to open negotiations with India.

"At present, the country's emotions are at a different level".

Tensions between the archrivals escalated after a suicide attack in Indian-administered Kashmir killed at least 42 Indian soldiers.

US, Taliban pause negotiations in Doha following 'solid' talks
US Special Representative for Afghanistan Reconciliation Zalmay Khalilzad claimed that the Doha talks which started on Monday were productive.

Asked about cricketer-turned politician Navjot Singh Siddhu's comment on resuming dialogue with Pakistan, Mr. Tewari said, "Dialogue can only take place when the atmosphere is conducive for a dialogue and the current atmosphere is not conducive for a dialogue". "With great respect, all the statements play into the hands of Pakistan".

He also, despite the military situation in the country, spoke about elections.

The Chinese government's top diplomat, State Councillor Wang Yi, spoke by telephone with Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and expressed "deep concern", China's foreign ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

Prime Minister Imran Khan offered every possible help in the investigation, but India turned down the offer and whipped up war hysteria. Two of the pilots have been killed in the incident.

"At a time when India is facing hostility of war and country needs firm leadership, PM Narendra Modi instead of concentrating on the matters of national security trying to serve political interest by addressing his BJP workers is ridiculous besides betrayal of national sentiments (sic), Mayawati wrote on Twitter".
