Qureshi said that Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan chose to hand over the Indian Air Force pilot as a gesture of goodwill towards India.

Referring to the recent simmering tensions between India and Pakistan, Qureshi said that prime minister Khan reaffirmed that "Islamabad will take two steps if New Delhi takes one".
