Europe Editor and Presenter

Pakistan’s Prime Minister has said his country will release a captured Indian fighter pilot, in what he called a “gesture of peace”.

Imran Khan said Pakistan wants peace, but that shouldn’t be seen as a sign of weakness. It follows a series of violent incidents between the two nuclear-armed countries over the disputed region of Kashmir, in the most serious confrontation for decades.
