ISLAMABAD: Two high-speed Indian aircraft violated the Pakistani airspace by intruding three nautical miles in Attari, Fazilka sector at 10:40am on Tuesday.

The aircraft stayed inside Pakistani airspace for about two minutes, a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) spokesperson said here on Tuesday. He said that the PAF initiated prompt tactical actions and scrambled two fighter aircraft to challenge the intruders.

Upon PAF actions, Indian aircraft exited the Pakistani airspace. The Foreign Ministry has conveyed serious concern to the Indian High Commission over the airspace violation by the Indian aircraft.

It said Pakistan considers the airspace violation as a contravention of the "1991 Agreement between Pakistan and India on Prevention of Air Space Violations and for Permitting over Flights and Landings by Military Aircraft".

While voicing its concerns with India, Pakistan called upon it to respect all existing agreements and CBMs that have been reached between the two countries.

End.
