Flagrantly blaming Pakistan for ceasefire violations, India’s Defence Minister AK Antony said, “Nothing happens without the facilitation of the Pakistan Army” and there is no difference in opinion over suspending talks with its neighbour.

The entire government was united in backing the Indian Army against aggression from across the border, he told lawmakers in Rajya Sabha, the upper house of the Indian Parliament, on Monday. The statement was a repeat of his earlier statements in the lower house.

A day after five Indian soldiers were killed in a cross-LoC ambush on August 6, Antony had controversially said that “men in Pakistan Army uniforms” killed the soldiers.

Antony explained that his first statement “was based on details available then”. He assured the upper house that the armed forces would do everything to maintain the sanctity of the Line of Control (LoC). “Our army is taking all possible steps to retaliate to every action.”
