His message comes after Pakistan shot down two Indian warplanes that had crossed into its side of the Kashmir airspace. Pakistani jets entered into the Bimber Hali-Noushera sector at the Line of Control but were forced to turn back following a confrontation with Indian jets. In an address to the nation Mr Khan warned of the dangers posed to both nations if the violence continues.

Mr Khan said: “History tells us that wars are full of miscalculation. My question is that given the weapons we have can we afford miscalculation.“

Meanwhile in a bid to solve the crisis the Pakistani leader called for a sense of “wisdom” to de-escalate the dispute with its nuclear-armed neighbour.

He added Pakistan and India should “sit down and talk” in order to avoid further escalations.

A Pakistan military spokesman has confirmed police have captured two Indian Pilots. The three Pakistani warplanes reportedly crossed the border in retaliation to an alleged Indian bombing raid yesterday.

According to an Indian official, the Pakistani jets crossed the ceasefire line which serves as a border between the two countries within the Kashmir region.

Earlier Major General Asif Ghafoor, a spokesman for the Pakistan armed forces said: “PAF shot down two Indian aircrafts inside Pakistani airspace.”

In a statement, Pakistan’s foreign ministry said it had hit a “non-military” target inside Indian-controlled Kashmir, but that it had avoided human loss and collateral damage.

The ministry added the state had “no intention of escalation, but are fully prepared to do so if forced into that paradigm”.

It added: “If India is striking at so called terrorist backers without a shred of evidence, we also retain reciprocal rights to retaliate against elements that enjoy Indian patronage while carrying out acts of terror in Pakistan.”

Meanwhile a Pakistan military spokesman has since stated it had “no choice” but to respond to India’s attack on its territory but did not want to escalate the crisis and avoided hitting military targets or causing casualties in an air strike.

Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor, head of the military press wing, said Pakistani jets had locked on to six targets in a demonstration of their capacity to hit key installations but had deliberately avoided causing any damage.
