Just one day after the bitter talks over the brutal killing of two Indian soldiers by the Pakistani army soldiers, the Pakistan government has now decided to hold talks with India to sort out all the issues.
It is said in reports that the offer was made last night by Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar saying to have talks with Indian diplomats over the issues to resolve the differences related to Line of Control [LoC] and reinforce ceasefire.
Earlier, Hina Rabbani Khar had accused the Indian Army to create war atmosphere and said that the Indian army violated ceasefire.
Talking to media, Khar said, “Pakistan is deeply disappointed to hear statements from India that are “upping the ante” and claimed her government is creating a “precedence” of not following war-mongering.”
Further, she said, “India, Pakistan and the South Asian region cannot afford a conflict between the two countries and the doors of dialogue have to remain open.”
Hina Rabbani Khar’s statement came after the comments made by the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s warning to Pakistani that India cannot operate business as usual with Pakistan after high tension over the LoC.
On the other hand, in the meeting between India and Pakistan foreces on Wednesday has decided to maintain ceasefire on the LoC in Jammu and Kashmir.
Talking to media, Indian army official said, “The DGMOs (Director General of Military Operations) of India and Pakistan had a 10 minute talk in the morning and agreed not to violate the ceasefire and exercise maximum restraint.”
He added, “The DGMOs agreed not to allow the situation along the LoC, which divides Kashmir between India and Pakistan, to escalate”
In addition, the Indian Army Chief General Bikram Singh had Tuesday termed the killing of the Indian soldiers “an unpardonable act” and said his forces reserved the “right to retaliate”.
