RAWALPINDI: The Pakistan Army conveyed to the Indian Director General of Military Operations (DGMO), in a special hotline contact, that the security of Pakistani civilians living along the Line of Control (LoC) would be ensured, said a statement released by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
"Indian DGMO was conveyed unflinching resolve of Pakistan Army to ensure the security of its population and it shall continue to take all necessary measures to deter any such aggression in future," said the ISPR.
The special hotline contact comes after increasing cross-border firing by Indian forces targeting civilians along the disputed border between the two nuclear-armed neighbours.
During the contact, Pakistan Army DGMO raised the issue of deliberate targeting of Pakistani civilians, residing in the vicinity of the working boundary.
The violation clearly undermines all existing understandings on the issue, said the Pakistan Army’s media cell.
