PROVOCATIVE ACT: INDIA
US Calls For Restrain
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
New Delhi, Jan 8: Terming the killing of two of its soldiers by Pakistan Army as a “provocative action”, India today said it will take up the issue with Islamabad.
“The Government of India considers the incident as a provocative action and we condemn it. Directors General of Military Operations (DGMOs) of the two countries are in touch over it. The government will take up the incident with Pakistan Government. We expect Islamabad to honor the ceasefire agreement strictly,” the Defence Ministry said in a statement. US calls for restrain.
Meanwhile, the US has asked India and Pakistan to take steps to end the exchange of fire and resume normal trade and travel across the Line of Control (LoC).
“We urge both sides to take steps to end exchanges of fire and to resume normal trade and travel across the line of control," State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters yesterday.
Nuland was responding to questions on news reports of firing by the Pakistani forces across the LoC on Indian posts.
India said its troops retaliated after shelling by Pakistan destroyed a home.
“We have consistently supported attempts between India and Pakistan to find a positive way forward between them and to work on issues of Kashmir. We are concerned about any reports of violence along the line of control in Kashmir," Nuland said.
