ISLAMABAD: Hotline contact was established between Pakistani and Indian Directors General Military Operation, Radio Pakistan reported on Saturday.
DGMO Pakistan Army took up the issue of continuing surge in ceasefire violations by Indian Army along Line of Control and Working Boundary, it said.
He also highlighted deliberate targeting of innocent civilians residing along LoC and Working Boundary by Indian forces on false pretext of reaction against alleged cross border infiltration.
“So far, during the current year, 219 innocent civilians including 112 women and children have become casualty due to Indian ceasefire violations,” it said.
DGMO Pakistan said such “unprofessional” and “unethical” acts are provocative, detrimental to the peace, vitiate the situation along LOC and also contribute towards further escalation.
He further said that “instead of blame game, Indian security forces need to look inwards”.
DGMO Pakistan emphasised that durable peace along LoC and Working Boundary is contingent upon practical manifestation of existing understandings by Indian troops on ground.
