SHORKOT, Pakistan: President Dr. Arif Alvi has said that Pakistan wants peace but any hostile move will be retaliated strongly as was done on February 27, 2019 when the Pakistan Air Force (PAF) shot down an Indian aircraft.
While addressing the 50th Anniversary of Mirages and Colours Award at Shorkot on Thursday, the president said that the PAF is fully capable of defending the Country against any misadventure of the adversaries.
The president said that the PAF has proved its mettle on various occasions by giving a befitting response to adversaries, especially to our belligerent neighbour India, despite limited resources.
President Arif Alvi appreciated the services of PAF Engineers and Technicians for keeping the Mirage aircrafts fly saying it is one of the leading air forces of the world, which fly their own manufactured fighter jets.
