New Delhi: Indian troops are giving appropriate response whenever Pakistan violates the ceasefire along the border, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley said Thursday.
"Whenever ceasefire violations take place our soldiers give appropriate response at the border," he told reporters here.

The Minister was asked about the continuing ceasefire violations on the sidelines of a conference of Tourism Ministers here.

There have been 12 ceasefire violation in the past ten days along the Indo-Pak border by Pakistani troops.

India had called off the talks between Foreign Secretaries of the countries slated for August 25, telling Pakistan bluntly to choose between an Indo-Pak dialogue or hobnobbing with the separatists.
