Pakistan agrees to implement 2003 ceasefire agreement

The two military commanders reviewed the prevailing situation along the Line of Control and International Border in J&K during a conversation over the hotline at 6 PM.

After that, the two armies issued identical statements saying both sides agreed to fully implement the 15-year-old ceasefire understanding. 

This comes a day after External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj reasserted that talks and terror can’t go hand in hand.

The Pakistan Army, in a statement, said both the DGMOs agreed to undertake sincere measures to improve the existing situation to ensure peace and avoidance of hardships to the civilians along the borders. 

The LoC has been witnessing increasing hostilities in the last few months. India has been giving a befitting reply to these incidents. 

A total of 908 incidents of ceasefire violations by Pakistan Army were reported till Tuesday in the current year as against 860 incidents during 2017.
