The Pentagon in another statement said that Mr. Shanahan has discussed with senior US military officials about the situation. “Acting Secretary Shanahan’s focus is on de-escalating tensions and urging both of the nations to avoid further military action,” the statement added.
India and Pakistan are in between high tensions. On Wednesday, an Indian Air Force pilot was captured by Pakistan following a jet fight which is considered the worst escalation between the two countries in nearly two decades.
The situation started to be inflamed after Jaish-e-Mohammad, Pakistan based terror group carried a suicide bomb attack on Indian CRPF convoy killing over 40 CRPF personnel. India as a reply crossed the Line of Control and carried out airstrikes destroying a major terror training camp of Jaish.
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said, “It was our plan to not cause any collateral damage, and not to cause any casualties. We simply wanted to show capability. Two Indian MiGs crossed Pakistan’s Borders, and we shot them down. I want to now address India and say let sanity prevail.”
