Pakistani foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar on Tuesday accused India of "warmongering" over the violence along the Line of Control.

Speaking at an event here, Khar said, "We see warmongering."

"It is deeply disturbing to hear statements which are upping the ante, where one politician is competing with the other to give a more hostile statement," she said.

"As I read statements coming in from the highest levels of (the Indian) government, I can just say that we are deeply disappointed and I can say on behalf of my government that we feel that the dialogue process should be uninterrupted and uninterruptible," Khar said.

Earlier on Tuesday, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh said there could not be "business as usual" with Pakistan in the light of the recent events.

India claims two Indian soldiers were killed by Pakistani troops on January 8 near the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir's Poonch sector. One of the soldiers were beheaded and the killers took the head away with them.

"After this barbaric act, there cannot be business as usual with Pakistan," Singh said.

On the other hand, Pakistan claims that three of its troops have been killed by Indian firing over the past few days.
