Pakistan and Indian Army agree to LOC ceasefire


Lahore, 24th February: Pakistan and Indian armies agree to reinforce the ceasefire along Line Of Control ( LOC). 

Baaghi TV: According to reports from the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), both the director-general of military operations of India and Pakistan reviewed the situation along the Line of Control.

The ISPR statement read that both the DGs made hotline contact in the interest of achieving mutually beneficial and sustainable peace.

It said they agreed to address each other’s key issues which have the tendency to disturb the peace and lead to violence.

As per reports from Geo News, both sides agreed for strict observance of all agreements, understandings and ceasefire along the LOC and all other sectors, which will take effect from tonight.

Pakistan and India reiterated that existing mechanisms of hotline contact and border flag meetings would be utilised to resolve any unforeseen situation.

After the increasing number of cases of LoC violations by India which have been reported by the Pakistan Army, contact between the two military officials was finally made.

According to reports from Geo News, the statement is being considered an attempt by both nations to follow the ceasefire on the LoC that was agreed in 2003 which had three main points.

Defence construction: New defence construction will not be done within 500 meters of the LoC. However, defensive positions can be maintained.

Firing: Direct engagement with each other’s posts will be avoided.

Flag meeting and hotline contact: Both sides can demand a flag meeting at the level of local commanders to resolve any issues along the LoC. If clarification on any issue is required, it can be sought through a flag meeting or hotline contact.

As per reports, ISPR Director General Major General Babar Iftikhar confirmed India and Pakistan’s DGsMO have been contacting over a hotline connection since 1987.

He said, there was a spike in ceasefire violations along the LoC from 2014.

He said both DGsMO have agreed that the existing 2003 agreement should be implemented in letter and spirit.

He said more than 13,500 ceasefire violations have taken place since 2003 claiming the lives of 310 citizens and injured 1,600.
