UN observers probing ceasefire violations across LOC

United Nations: UN observers in Jammu and Kashmir are investigating allegations of ceasefire violations across the Line of Control (LoC) in the state, a spokesperson for Secretary General Antonio Guterres has said.
Asked at the daily briefing about the situation in Kashmir, Stephane Dujarric said: “We’ve seen the alleged ceasefire violations over the Line of Control, which are currently being investigated by the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (Unmogip), in the Pakistani-administered side of the LoC at Domel, Kotli and Bhimber, where the security situation has, indeed, been tense.”
“We continue to underline the need for the parties to find a peaceful solution through engagement and dialogue,” he added.
He said that when the UNMOGIP presents its report on the alleged incidents, “We will share.”
He ignored a reporter’s claim that India was pressuring the UNMOGIP not to make a report.
Last week, Guterres’s Deputy Spokesperson had categorically denied that India was blocking the UNMOGIP from filing reports. (Agencies)
