ISLAMABAD: South Asia and south Asian association for regional cooperation (SA and SAARC) director general (DG) Mohammad Faisal summoned, on Tuesday, the Indian acting deputy high commissioner and condemned the unprovoked ceasefire violations by Indian occupation forces in the Rakhchikri sector on the line of control (LOC), that provided a cover for the planting of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) by non-state actors, resulting in the martyrdom of three soldiers and injuring another; an official statement said.

According to detail, Faisal categorically rejected the Indian claims that there was any crossing of the LOC by the Indian forces.

“The Indian actions got a befitting response from Pakistani side and their guns were silenced” adding “The false claims by India about the alleged cross LOC adventures are a figment of their imagination and counter-productive for peace and tranquility on the LOC,” DG lashed.

He urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement; investigate this and other incidents of ceasefire violations; instruct the Indian forces to respect the ceasefire, in letter and spirit and maintain peace on the LOC.

Faisal urged that the Indian side should permit united nations military observer group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the united nations (UN) security council resolutions.
