Pakistan summons Indian Chargé d´Affaires to lodge protest
The Indian Chargé d´Affaires was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today to register the protest.
The FO condemned the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces.
It underscored that such senseless acts are in clear violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding.
Moreover, it also goes against all established humanitarian norms and professional military conduct.
FO said these egregious violations of international law reflect consistent Indian attempts to escalate the situation along the LoC.
Furthermore, Pakistan government termed it a threat to regional peace and security.
It added that by raising tensions along the LoC and the WB, India cannot divert attention from the grave human rights situation in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu & Kashmir (IIOJ&K).
2003 Ceasefire Understanding
The FO called upon Indian side to respect the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding, investigate this and other such incidents of deliberate ceasefire violations.
Moreover, the FO urged India to maintain peace along the LoC and the WB.
It further urged India to allow the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) to play its mandated role as per the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolutions.
Meanwhile, Indian occupation forces along the LoC and the Working Boundary (WB) have been continuously targeting civilian populated areas with artillery fire, heavy-caliber mortars and automatic weapons.
During 2020, India has committed 2840 ceasefire violations to date. That resulted in 27 shahadats and serious injuries to 245 innocent civilians.
