PM felicitates nation on 2nd anniversary of Operation Swift Retort
Prime Minister Imran Khan has congratulated the entire nation on the 2nd Anniversary of our response to India’s illegal, reckless military adventure of air strikes against Pakistan on this day in 2019.
In a series of tweets today (Saturday), saluting the Armed Forces of Pakistan, the Prime Minister said we responded with determined resolve at a time and place of our choosing.
He said we also demonstrated to the world Pakistan’s responsible behaviour in the face of India’s irresponsible military brinkmanship, by returning the captured Indian pilot.
