FO summons Indian diplomat to register strong protest over CFVs along LoC August 05, 2020

ISLAMABAD-The Foreign Office summoned Indian Charge d'Affaires Gaurav Ahluwalia to register strong protest over Ceasefire Violations by India along the Line of Control yesterday.

The ceasefire violation resulted in one Shahadat and serious injuries to six innocent civilians.

Condemning the deplorable targeting of innocent civilians by the Indian occupation forces, Director General South Asia and SAARC Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said that such senseless acts are in clear violation of the 2003 Ceasefire Understanding.

He said these violations are against all established humanitarian norms and professional military conduct.

Zahid Hafeez Chaudhry said these egregious violations of international law reflect consistent Indian attempts to escalate the situation along the Line of Control and are a threat to regional peace and security.

He said that by raising tensions along the LoC and the Working Boundary, India cannot divert attention from the grave human rights situation in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

This year, India has committed 1877 ceasefire violations to date, resulting in 15 shahadats and serious injuries to 144 innocent civilians.
