Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday said that the manner in which Islamabad responded to Indian aggression in February 2019 was indicative of the nation's maturity.

Addressing a ceremony in Islamabad to commemorate 'Pakistan's Responsible and Resolute Response to Indian Aggression' of February 26 last year, he said that the country was prepared for India's violations.

"I was very proud of how the Pakistani people dealt with the crisis," Dawn quoted him as saying.

"The fact that the crisis did not aggravate and the situation didn't worsen only shows the maturity of the Pakistani nation."

Imran said that Pakistan was aware through intelligence reports that India planned to show some belligerence following the Pulwama attack.

"We were ready," he said, adding that Pakistan's entire response to Indian bombing in its territory was that of a mature country.

On February 26, 2019, Indian fighter planes had conducted air strikes inside Pakistani territory. The air strikes came in the wake of Pulwama attack in Jammu and Kashmir in which 40 security personnel were killed.
