FO summons Indian diplomat over LoC ceasefire violation
ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office (FO) on Wednesday summoned the Indian deputy high commissioner to lodge a protest over the cross-border attack in Azad Jammu & Kashmir (AJK) which claimed a life of an elderly woman.
The FO’s South Asia chief urged the Indian diplomat to respect the ceasefire accord and investigate the violation, the FO said in a statement.
It merits mentioning here that an elderly woman was killed on Tuesday (yesterday) when the Indian army resorted to an unprovoked firing in Chirikot sector along the Line of Control (LoC), Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement.
Last week, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the LoC in Chirikot sector.
The premier was briefed by the commanding general officer on the situation along LoC, the Indian ceasefire violations targeting civilians and befitting response by Pakistan Army.
Moreover, the prime minister condemned the Indian unprofessional approach of targeting innocent civilians. He said that Pakistan shall continue its political, diplomatic and moral support to Kashmiris for their just struggle.
