Mendhar, Oct. 1 (ANI): Even after the prime ministers of both countries met in New York to discuss steps to ensure the ceasefire is protected along the Line of Control (LoC) a few days ago, Pakistan on Tuesday once again violated the ceasefire in Mendhar Sector of Jammu and Kashmir.
Heavy firing began on the Pakistani side at 4:30 p.m.
Further details are awaited.
In the September 29 talks between Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh and his Pakistani counterpart Nawaz Sharif, both sides had agreed that improving the situation on the LoC is the 'precondition' to 'forward movement' in the India-Pakistan relationship.
Moreover, at the meeting, the leaders of both countries decided to task the Directors General of Military Operations on both sides to prepare a strategy for effective restoration of the ceasefire along the LoC. (ANI)
