Vastavam web: Pakistan summoned India’s acting Deputy High Commissioner here to condemn the alleged “ceasefire violation” today along the Line of Control by Indian forces, in which a Pakistani man was killed.Pakistan’s Foreign Office (FO) said in a statement that Indian forces resorted to firing in Kotli/Nikial Sector, which killed a 22-year-old man in Balakot village and injured four people, including three women.The FO urged the Indian side to respect the 2003 ceasefire arrangement, investigate this and other incidents of ceasefire violations, instruct its forces to respect the ceasefire, in letter and spirit, and maintain peace on the LoC and working boundary.
Pakistan also urged India to permit the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the UN Security Council resolutions.India maintains that the UNMOGIP has outlived its utility and is irrelevant after the Simla Agreement and the consequent establishment of the Line of Control.
