ISLAMABAD- Strongly rejecting Indian allegations of ceasefire violations, Pakistan today asked India to hold an urgent meeting of the Director General Military Operations (DGMOs) of the two countriesto discuss the situation and halt firing along the working boundary and the Line of Control (LoC).
Earlier today, two people including a womanwere killed, and four injured in Sialkot in firing by Indian Border Security Forces (BSF) personnel along the working boundary.
"DGMOs of both countries should meet immediately to 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 told a private TV channel.
Expressing concern over the unprovoked firing by Indian BSF personnel, Aziz said the issue was affecting bilateral ties and peace in the region.
Rejecting Indian allegations of about Pakistan sending militants via tunnel operating from the Pakistani side, Aziz said if India had any evidence, it should share that with Pakistan, as indulging in blame games wouldn’t help.
Aziz recalled that the last meeting of DGMOs between the two countries helped in normalizing the situation along the LoC and the working boundary and would be helpful again.
