Good thing, they should have done it long back: IAF Chief on Pak opening airspace


Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa on Wednesday said that the opening of airspace by Pakistan is a good thing, adding that the neighbouring country should have done it a long time back. “Pakistan opened its airspace yesterday. It is a good thing. They should have opened it a long time back,” he told ANI.

Dhanoa, however, refused to comment on 26/11 Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed’s arrest in Pakistan. “I will only comment on the airspace,” the Air Force chief said, reiterating that it is a welcome move.

For the first time since February’s Balakot strike, Pakistan in the wee hours of Tuesday morning had opened its airspace for all civilian traffic, as per the Pakistan Civil Aviation Authority.  Read  More
