Protest lodged with Indian HC over LoC firing


Islamabad—The Foreign Office on Thursday summoned Indian High Commissioner Gautam Bambawale following unprovoked firing by India on the Line of Control in which two Pakistani soldiers were martyred.
Pakistan strongly condemned the unprovoked firing across the Line of Control.
Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmed Chaudhry handed over protest note to the Indian High Commissioner, sources said.
According to the protest note India is continuously violating ceasefire agreement of 2014, adding that India should respect the agreement and should stop the ceasefire violations.
The protest note says India should fix the responsibility of the attack; otherwise Pakistan reserves the right to respond.
According to a Foreign Office statement, “Pakistan strongly condemns unprovoked ceasefire violations at LoC by Indian forces, which is a continuation of a pattern of cease fire violations committed by the Indian forces. The valiant Armed Forces of Pakistan have given and will continue to give a befitting response to any aggressi-on.”
“We can assure India that any such aggression will not go unanswered or unpunished. Pakistan is ready to defend its people and territory from any Indian aggression or Indian State sponsored terrorism on Pakistani soil,” the statement added.—Sabah
