Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Thursday announced that Indian Pilot Wing Commander Abhinandan will be released on Friday as a peace gesture.

Abhinandan, flying a MiG -21 Bison fighter plane, was chasing Pakistani jets which transgressed into Jammu and Kashmir yesterday and crossed over to PoK where his aircraft was shot down. He ejected safely and was taken to the custody by Pakistani Army.
Khan said the decision to release Abhinandan was a peace gesture of Pakistan.
"Pakistan wants peace and development... War will destroy both the nations," the Prime Minister said.
"War is not a solution… but don't consider de-escalation as our weakness," he added.
