New Delhi, Jun.24 (HS): Air Chief Marshal Birender Singh Dhanoa said today that Pakistan closing its airspace was its problem and it did not affect India. Addressing media persons, the Air Chief Marshal said that the Indian Air Force has achieved that despite rift with Pakistan, the civil aviation in the country remained unaffected.
“They did not come into our airspace. The main thing that you should look at is what the objective of the military operation was. Our objective was to strike in Balakot and we achieved it. Their objective was to strike our army bases but they could not do it,” said the Air Chief Marshal.
He added, “That is the bottom line. How you did it? How many (jets) came? What kind of combat took place? But what matters is whether you fulfilled your military objective. We achieved our military objective, they did not achieve their objective. And let me tell you, none of them crossed the Line of Control.”
