Ceasefire violations: Pak suggests DGMOs meeting to India
Strongly rejecting Indian allegations of it committing repeated violations of the ceasefire, Pakistan on Saturday suggested that both sides consider holding an urgent meeting between the Directors General of Military Operations (DGMOs) to resolve the situation on the Line of Control (LoC).
Earlier today, at least two people, including a woman, were killed, and four others were injured in cross-border firing.
The dead woman was identified as Nazia, while her two daughters were severely injured in the attack. Several houses were also damaged and a number of livestock were killed.
Ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) and working boundary between Pakistan and India continue intermittently, with casualties reported on both sides.
"DGMOs of both countries should meet immediately discuss ways and means to stop the current spate of firing along the working boundary and Pakistan is also sending a proposal to India for the meeting," Adviser on National Security and Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz, was quoted by the Dawn, as saying.
He further stated that the firing can affect bilateral ties and overall peace in the region.
