Pakistan High Commissioner to New Delhi Salman Bashir on Wednesday rejected allegations of its involvement in the killing of five Indian soldiers at the Line of Control.

 Speaking to media before a ceremony in connection with the Pakistan’s Independence Day, he said that the Pakistan Army was not involved in firing at the LoC.

He said that Pakistan wanted to normalize the tense situation at the LoC and was ready to take effective measures for peace.

Bashir was of the view that tension between both the countries could only be reduced through dialogue. He said that Pakistan was waiting for Indian measures to normalize the situation.
