Press Release

Rawalpindi - June 5, 2017: 
Special Hotline Contact was established between Pakistan and Indian DGsMO on 5 Jun May 2017 at 1000 hrs (PST) in the backdrop of recent ceasefire violations by Indian Army along LOC/ WB. Pakistani DGMO Maj Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza raised issues of unprovoked firing by Indian troops along LOC / Working Boundary and  continuously targeting of innocent civilians particularly on June 1, 2017  in Battal, Hot Spring and Jandrot Sectors which resulted in martyrdom of innocent civilians.  Pakistan DGMO  told his counterpart that killing of innocent civilians and inadvertent crossers at LOC and labeling them infiltrator is highly unprofessional and unsoldierly. DGMO Pakistan Army asked for actionable evidence regarding alleged infiltration and also to look inwards for correct identification of the issue.  Pakistan Army is committed to maintain peace and tranquility along LOC / WB.  However, any Indian misadventure from across / along LOC in any form shall be responded with full force at the time and place of our choosing with onus of responsibility on Indian aggressive behaviour.
