Appreciating the announcement by the Pakistan premier to release the captured Indian Air Force (IAF) pilot Abhinandan, the Turkish president pointed out that this gesture was “a sign of strength.”

Navjot Singh Sidhu

Indian cricketer-turned-politician Navjot Singh Sidhu also hailed the move and called it a noble act.

“Imran Khan every noble act makes a way for itself…your goodwill gesture is ‘a cup of joy’ for a billion people, a nation rejoices…I am overjoyed for his parents and loved ones.”
