US asks India, Pakistan to end firing at LoC
Washington: The US on Tuesday asked India and Pakistan to take steps to end the exchange of fire and resume normal trade and travel across the Line of Control.
"We urge both sides to take steps to end exchanges of fire and to resume normal trade and travel across the line of control," State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland told reporters.
Nuland was responding to questions on news reports of firing by the Pakistani forces across the LoC on Indian posts.
India said its troops retaliated after unprovoked shelling by Pakistan destroyed a home.
"We have consistently supported attempts between India and Pakistan to find a positive way forward between them and to work on issues of Kashmir. We are concerned about any reports of violence along the line of control in Kashmir," Nuland said.
