Bengaluru - Accusing India of violating ceasefire at least 400 times, Pakistan High Commissioner Abdul Basit has said it is better to formalise the 2003 India-Pak agreement to end firing at the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir region.

"According to our estimation, from this side (India), at least 400 times violations have taken place (at LoC in Jammu and Kashmir region). As many as 40 people have been martyred in Pakistan," Basit said at a meet-the-press programme in Indian city of Bengaluru. "Instead of accusing each other, it is better to formalize the 2003 ceasefire agreement. This proposal was kept before India, and (we) expect that at some point of time India accepts that proposal, so that this problem ends," he said.

He said Islamabad hopes India accepts 'good' proposals presented by Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

"We want there should be stability at the Line of Control and there should not be any firing. The proposals that our PM has presented are good and we hope that India will consider them," he said.
