Pakistan to Return Captured Pilot as Tensions Ease

Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan has announced that he has ordered the release of the Indian pilot captured earlier this week in a shoot-down over Indian airspace. Khan described his return as a “gesture for peace.”

The shoot-downs are part of several days of escalating violence along the Line of Control, with the two large, nuclear-armed states escalating their military action, and describing themselves to remain “on high alert.”

Though this announced release has clearly eased a lot of the tensions, military on neither side seems willing to admit it. India’s military says they “welcome” the release of their pilot, but said they would not say if they think this will amount to a deescalation of the conflict itself.
