Published: October 28, 2013

UNITED NATIONS: UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has urged Pakistan and India to resolve the ongoing tensions along Line of Control (LoC) in the disputed Kashmir region through dialogue. “We are obviously aware of these reports (of exchanges of fire along LoC) over the past few days, and obviously not just the past few days,” Secretary General’s Spokesman, Martin Nesirky, told the regular noon briefing in response to a question. “The discussions that did take place (between leaders of Pakistan and India) on the margins of the General Assembly meetings last month were important, and it is precisely that kind of a dialogue which the secretary general would wish to encourage,” he said.
