Pakistan Condemns Indian Ceasefire Violation On LoC

By

Pakistan’s Adviser to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, Mr. Sartaj Aziz, has condemned the  Indian firing on the LoC that has led to the killing of seven Pakistani soldiers, in the Bhimber area, labeling it as “unprovoked.”

Aziz expressed heartfelt condolences to the families of the soldiers, calling them “martyrs.”

According to Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry, Aziz expressed grave concern over the recently increased frequency and duration of indiscriminate firing and shelling from the Indian side, which he claimed is deliberately targeting villages and civilian populated areas and has resulted in the killing of 26 civilians and injuries to 107, including women and children, “in complete violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding and international law.”

Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry said the Armed Forces of Pakistan gave a befitting response, without providing further details.

Additionally, Aziz expressed apprehension that India’s actions, which constituted a threat to the maintenance of peace and security, may lead to strategic miscalculation. He emphasized that Pakistan was exercising maximum restraint in the face of Indian belligerence, according to the Foreign Ministry.

Pakistan is urging the UNMOGIP to send an urgent report to the UN Security Council to inform them about the serious ceasefire violations on LoC and the unwarranted escalation of tension between the two countries.

    That is strange – the Pakistanis are not used to admitting their losses normally, but have come up with this figure even though the Indian Army made no such claims to that effect. It appears that Pakistan is finally feeling the heat both from the Indian Army and their own population over their missing soldiers, and have to finally come clean on some of their ‘brave’ soldiers’ losses.

    It would be foolhardy for Pakistan to continue on its present belligerent course of confrontation with India because it simply cannot afford to do that for a prolonged period of time. But then again, when was Pakistan ever rational..!
