RAWALPINDI - Chief of the Ary Staff, General Qamar Javed Bajwa contacted the commander of United States Central Command, Chief of the Defence Staff UK and Chief of the Defence Force Australia over the recent standoff between India and Pakistan.

Major General Asif Ghafoor, the Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations, took to Twitter and announced that the military chief had telephonic contact with the ambassadors of the US, UK and China in Pakistan as well over the recent tension between the South Asian countries and its impact on peace and stability in the region and beyond.

Pakistan's military chief reiterated that Pakistan shall respond to any aggression in self-defence.

The contact comes amid repeated acts of aggression by India in the aftermath of Pulwama attack in which over 40 soldiers were left dead on February 14th.

India and Pakistan are at daggers drawn over the attack in Indian occupied Kashmir for which New Delhi pinned blame on Islamabad without any evidence.

In a bid to ramp up pressure on Pakistan for no reason at all, Indian Air Force aircraft violated the Line of Control on Tuesday before being whisked away by Pakistan Air Force.

Indian Air Force aircraft violated the Line of Control again on Wednesday, however, this time Pakistan Air Force shot down two fighter jets while capturing a pilot, Abhinandan alive who would be released on Friday (today).
