Former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has revealed that in 2019, Pakistan and India had come close to a nuclear war, but it was the US that made both countries this dangerous. Stopped keeping away from the process.
Former US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has created a threat by making many revelations in his book. Mike Pompeo said that the world does not know that in February 2019, Pakistan and India came close to a nuclear war.
He also wrote that Pakistan shot down an Indian MiG (Russian-made MiG) and captured the pilot (Squadron Leader Abhinandan). I (Mike Mompeo) was in Hanoi at that time for a conference. I was woken up by an urgent phone call from a senior Indian official. The Indian official believed that Pakistan had started preparing for a nuclear attack.
Referring to the Indian official, he further wrote that the Indian official said that India is considering a move, I said you should not do anything, give us time to sort things out. Convinced not to go for nuclear war. No nation could have done what we did to avoid a terrible outcome that night.
On February 14, 2019, there was a suicide attack on an Indian military convoy in Pulwama district of Occupied Kashmir, in which more than 45 personnel were killed. After that, India started blaming Pakistan for the attack without any evidence.
After that, on February 26, from 3:00 pm to 3:30 am, they tried to violate the Pakistani border from three places, two of which were Sialkot and Bahawalpur. The Indian planes came inwards and were intercepted by the Pakistan Air Force planes, on which the Indian planes dropped their ‘payload’ and fled back.
Pakistan strongly condemned this incident and gave a clear message to India that Pakistan will respond to this provocation at its own time and place, now India should wait for Pakistan’s surprise.
Later, on the morning of February 27, Pakistan Air Force aircraft engaged 6 targets in Occupied Kashmir on the Line of Control. The strike in place was meant to show that Pakistan has the retaliatory capability, but Pakistan does not want to do anything that would make it appear irresponsible.
When the Pakistan Air Force took the target, after that 2 Indian Air Force planes again crossed the LoC and came towards Pakistan, but this time the Pakistan Air Force was ready and shot down both the Indian planes, one Azad Kashmir plane. While the other one fell within the boundaries of Occupied Kashmir.
The pilot of the plane that crashed in Pakistan’s territory was detained by Pakistan, whose name was Wing Commander Abhinandan, who was later handed over to the Indian authorities through the Wagah border in a dignified manner.
