Pak had no option but to release Wg Cdr #AbhinandanVarthaman as per Int'l norms, so stop calling it as 'peace gesture'. Goodwill gesture would actually be when Pak hands over Masood Azhar & Hafiz Saeed to India.

Pak clearly bogged down by intl pressure, USA in particular. Imran released the statement #Abhinandan post Donald Trump's statement that 'a good news will follow shortly'.
