“In order to maintain peace, the Indian submarine was not targeted. It is the reflection of Pakistan’s desire for peace. Learning a lesson from this incident, India too should show its inclination towards peace,” he added.
He said Pakistan Navy is fully alert and prepared to protect the country’s waters and any eventuality from India.
This is not the first time Pak Navy has stopped an Indian submarine’s attempt to enter Pakistan’s waters. In 2016, an Indian submarine was detected and was forced back by Pakistani ships on patrol.
