New Delhi,The cases of ceasefire violations have been reported along the Indo-Pak border mainly on the border of J&K. In the year 2014 (Upto 11th July), there have been 42 ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) and International Border (IB) under the operational control of Army in J&K. As per report, no security personnel/civilian injured or martyred during these ceasefire violations.
India has repeatedly emphasized, including at the highest level, the need for Pakistan to uphold the sanctity of the Line of Control and abide by its ceasefire commitment of 2003 along the international border and Line of Control. All violations of ceasefire are also taken up with Pakistan military authorities at the appropriate level through the established mechanism of hotlines, flag meetings as well as weekly talks between the DsGMO. These incidences however have been denied by the Pakistan military authorities.
However, under the Simla Agreement of 1972, India is committed to resolve all outstanding issues with Pakistan including the issue of Pakistan’s forcible and illegal occupation of Jammu and Kashmir through a peaceful bilateral dialogue. This was stated by Kiren Rijiju, Minister of State in the Ministry of Home Affairs in written reply to a question by Asaduddin Owaisi in the Lok Sabha today.
