New Delhi has presented extensive testimony by American officials to the US Congress in which they assured lawmakers that Washington has a "very enhanced end-use monitoring program" of Pakistan's F-16s, which has always been a symbol of pride and machismo for the Pakistan Air Force, even though it is now largely outdated.

India claimed it targeted a JEM training camp, but Pakistan denies it, adding that it does not harbor any terrorist groups.

But Khan said there was a huge desire to build a peaceful and stable Pakistan.
