Pakistan Peoples’ Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Tuesday took a jibe at Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi, asking him to be more believable if he was going to lie.

Bilawal was referring to Foreign Policy’s report that states a US count of Pakistan’s F-16 fleet debunked Indian claims of shooting down a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) fighter jet

In a tweet, Bilawal told the Indian premier he only hurts himself when lying, adding that “the great nation of India can do better”.

Indian claims of shooting down a Pakistan Air Force (PAF) F-16 on February 27 were debunked by US officials as all aircraft are accounted for, reported Foreign Policy.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader Ahsan Iqbal also welcomed the report, stating the Indian lie had been exposed.

Pakistan invited US officials to physically count the F-16 planes after the incident. Some of the aircraft were not immediately available for inspection due to the conflict, so it took US personnel several weeks to account for all of the jets, one of the officials said.
