Pak lodges protest with India over `unprovoked firing`
Islamabad: The Pakistan Army today said
it had registered a "strong protest" with India over what it
described as unprovoked firing by Indian troops along the Line
of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.
The protest came days before Foreign Secretary-level
talks between the two countries in New Delhi on February 25.
"Indian troops resorted to unprovoked firing on the
Line of Control in Battal sector on the night of February
13-14, 2010," said a statement issued by the Inter-Services
Public Relations, the military`s media wing.
"Pakistan has lodged a strong protest with Indian
authorities for the ceasefire violation on Line of Control and
has demanded a flag meeting of local commanders. But flag
meeting has not been held so far," the statement said.
In recent months, India and Pakistan have accused each
other of several violations of the truce that was put in place
along the LoC in late 2003.
