Ceasefire violations: Indo-Pak secretary level talks on August 25
Zee Media Bureau
New Delhi: In order to raise concerns about the repeated ceasefire violations by Pakistan`s armed forces in Jammu and Kashmir, Indian Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh will be meeting her Pakistani counterpart Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry in Islamabad on August 25, as per reports on Wednesday.
However, Singh held a telephonic conversation with Chaudhary today, prior to her visit. During her conversation with him she said that such incidents will impede positive work.
Yesterday during a Rajya Sabha session, Defence Minister Arun Jaitley had claimed that Pakistan violated ceasefire in Jammu and Kashmir 19 times since the new government took over and the Indian side retaliated appropriately in each case.
"Our head has not bowed... This government will not let our heads bow," Defence Minister Arun Jaitley said replying to questions in Rajya Sabha.
Jaitley`s response came when Leader of Opposition Ghulam Nabi Azad said Narendra Modi, before becoming the Prime Minister, used to accuse the then UPA dispensation of being "weak". Then why the government has "bowed" to the recurring ceasefire violations by Pakistan, Azad asked.
Jaitley recalled that during the first meeting Prime Minister Narendra Modi had with his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif here on May 27, he had underlined the importance of border ceasefire.
"Our Prime Minister further emphasised the importance of maintaining peace and tranquility at the borders and upholding the sanctitiy of the LoC," he said about the meeting that took place a day after the new government took over.
