Alarmed by the nature of intrusion into the Keran sector of J&K, India on Monday asked Pakistan to maintain the ‘sanctity of the Line of Control’ (LoC) if it wanted an upswing in bilateral ties.

“We have repeatedly emphasised that the maintenance of sanctity of LoC is of primary importance. Even at the last meeting between Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif, this issue was re- emphasised,” said the external affairs ministry spokesperson, according to The Times of India.

Asked when will the DGMOs of India and Pakistan meet to lessen tensions along the currently-volatile LoC he said the two generals talk to each other on the hotline every Tuesday and the outcome would depend on their telephonic conversation.

    “Will Indian leadership explain that how many times India has violated LoC?????”

    If you want the truth, exactly zero times.

    Pakistani army has the purpose to violate ( to provide fire cover) to help Pakistani militants to infiltrate into India administered Kashmir . The last infiltration in the Keran sector resulted in the retaliation by Indian army to stop infiltration (seven militants dead and the catch of stockpiles of arms in the keran (forests) sector).The evidence is shown to the world media. Pakistani denial of involvement of their army carries no weight in India and other countries. Pakistan and its terrorist outfits ( nurtured by the army to make them strategic assets to bleed India) openly announce their intention and efforts to infiltrate in India administered Kashmir.

    Many Indians/Pakistanis from the leadership down are worse than a bunch of school children. They have had 75 years to work out their problems, and no solution in sight. It does not bode well for the future.

    @Sexton Blake: Bad math. The 2 countries came into separate existence 66 years back.

    Anyway you are trying to establish equivalence where none exists. If one country has attacked another 4 times, then both cannot be called quarrelsome.

    @p r sharma:
    All the evidence is cooked up by you, and world media has given it no weight. Pakistan Army is not going to open up a front in east, when it is fighting Indian supported terrroists in the west, so don’t try and decieve us. Indian Army is foolishly trying to heat up the LOC to justify and its unnecessarily large budget at a time when the economy is slowing down, and poverty and misery is on the rise in India.

    and Indian Army very successfully shot down peace agreement on Siachin recently.
    and escalation everytime there is a piece talk on the way.
    they have no guts to fight China, so only looking for a justification of thier own existence and huge defence budgets.
