ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has sent an important message to India through diplomatic channels, claims Indian media.

Pakistan has asked India to de-escalate border tension between security forces of the two countries.

Pakistan requested a military de-escalation along the Line of Control (LoC) through a message sent via diplomatic channels, government sources have told India Today.

The request of de-escalation by Pakistan has come in the wake of increased border skirmishes after the February terror attack in Pulwama that killed over 45 CRPF personnel. The communication for "de-escalation" was sent in mid-April, sources said.

India , meanwhile, remains firm on its stand that de-escalation will happen only when Pakistan takes strong measures to stop terror activities from its soil.

As per a review by the Army in the aftermath of Pulwama attack and airstrikes by the Indian Air Force, based on recent activities on the Pakistani side, it was assessed that Islamabad would put in efforts to ensure skirmishes are controlled.

"Pakistan will continue with proposals of de-escalation both through military and diplomatic channels," the assessment said.
