Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman said on Monday that Pakistan will give a “befitting response” to any misadventure “from the enemy”.
Replying to a question about the Indian air chief’s recent statement directing his soldiers to “be ready for action at a short notice,” the air chief said Pakistan was a peace-loving country, but if the adversary went for any misadventure, “our response to any aggression by the enemy will be such that their future generations will also remember it.”
He made the remarks after taking part in Air Force exercises and flying a Mirage fighter jet while on a visit to the Qadri Air Base in Skardu. The Air chief also reviewed the exercises and operational preparedness of Pakistan Air Force (PAF).
The air chief said the exercises were the part of PAF’s routine training, adding: “PAF is a battle-hardened force and we continue to ensure our operational preparedness 24/7.”
Aman said PAF had proven to be the best in the world by carrying out Operation Zarb-e-Azb in a highly professional manner for the last two and an half years, without even a single incident of collateral damage.
The air chief also said that the PAF is in complete synergy with its sister armed forces to carry out all operations to fight against terrorism.
