Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mohammed Qureshi has spoken about the controversy, surrounding the dogfight between the PAF and the Indian Air Force in late February.
"Pakistan had shot down two IAF planes on 27th Feb & Captured only ONE Indian Pilot that was Abhinandan, had captured no Israeli pilot. The initial claim of capturing two Indian pilots was because of a misunderstanding but it was cleared up by the end of the day", he said before a Foreign Relations Committee meeting.
The controversy started after the IAF had carried out an airstrike on an alleged Jaish-e-Mohammed terrorist camp in Pakistani Balakot in February. Islamabad stated that two Indian planes were downed by the PAF, while New Delhi confirmed the loss of only one aircraft, also insisting it had successfully downed a PAF F-16.
