Pakistan has lodged strong protest with India on unprovoked firing by its security forces at the Line of Control (LoC) and summoned its high-ranking diplomat at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Director General termed the “senseless Indian acts” a threat to regional peace and security, in clear violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding. “India cannot divert attention from the worsening human rights violations, taking place in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir,” he stressed.

He called upon Indian side to respect the Ceasefire Understanding, investigate incidents of deliberate ceasefire violations and maintain peace on the LoC and the Working Boundary.

The DG South Asia and SAARC also urged India to permit the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council Resolutions.
