Amid rising tensions between the two neighbouring nations, Pakistan National Assembly has passed aresolution condemning what it called increased aggression by the Indian Army along the Line of Control (LoC).
The resolution condemned the demonstrations outside the Pakistani High Commission premises in New Delhi and the stopping of a Delhi-Lahore bus near Amritsar city in Punjab last week, media reports said on Tuesday.
Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has reached out to India and appealed for talks to resolve all issues.
"It is vital India and Pakistan become good friends. Let us make a new beginning. Let us sit together to resolve all outstanding issues in a friendly manner and in a peaceful atmosphere," Sharif said.
According to Dawn News, he said terrorism was not a problem restricted to particular regions of the country and that concerted efforts were required to combat the menace.
In yet another incident of ceasefire violation, Pakistan on Tuesday morning fired indiscriminately on Indian posts along the Line of Control (LoC) at Ramgarh sector in Samba district of Jammu and Kashmir.
This was the eighth ceasefire violation by Pakistan in the last four days, said the Indian Army.
According to reports, the firing continued for about 15 minutes.
No casualty was reported.
Pakistan on Monday fired at the Kotha post of the Border Security Force (BSF) in Samba, reports said.
According to reports, it was the fourth ceasefire violations in less than 48 hours.
Pakistan a day ago summoned the Indian Deputy High Commissioner to raise concern over the "continuous ceasefire violations" by the Indian Border Security Force (BSF) along the Line of Control (LoC).
Indian envoy Gopal Baglay was summoned by Pakistan's Foreign Office on Monday afternoon as the neighbouring country protested the ceasefire violations by the BSF which resulted in the alleged death of a Pakistani civilian in Rawalakot.
The relation between the two countries soured after the killing of five Indian soldiers in an ambush by Pakistani troopers along the LoC in Poonch sector of Jammu and Kashmir on Aug 6.
Indian Defence Minister AK Antony on Thursday made a fresh statement in the Lower House of the Indian Parliament holding that special troops of Pakistani army were involved in the attack.
However, Pakistan had earlier denied the allegations and said the country's troops did not kill the Indian soldiers in an overnight attack on a patrol party along the LoC.
