Pakistan’s Foreign Office spokesperson, Dr. Mohammad Faisal, summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner Mr. Gaurav Ahluwalia today (August 16)) and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by the Indian occupation forces along the Line of Control (LoC) in Lipa and Battal Sectors
Dr. Mohammad Faisal urged the Indian side to instruct its forces to respect the ceasefire, in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary. He said the Indian side should permit UN Military Observer Group to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions.
In a statement, the Foreign Office Spokesperson said the Indian occupation forces have continuously been violating the 2003 ceasefire arrangement, which needs to be respected. He said the intended targeting of civilians is condemnable. The ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security, and may lead to a strategic miscalculation.
Earlier, four Pakistan armed forces personnel were martyred and five Indian soldiers killed in cross-firing at Line of Control on Thursday. According to military media wing ISPR, the Indian army violating Line of Control started unprovoked firing as Pakistan forces replied in befitting manners.
