The Indian Army will “abide by its commitment” to uphold the ceasefire understanding of 2003 if the Pakistan Army “initiates positive steps to control infiltration and abetment of terrorism” in J&K, Pakistan was told on Thursday. This was conveyed during a conversation between the Directors General of Military Operations (DGMOs) over the established hotline, which was held on Pakistan’s request. The Pakistan DGMO expressed satisfaction on the measures being taken along the LoC by troops to maintain peace and tranquillity. Over the last two months, there has been a sharp reduction in the quantum of ceasefire violations. Indian DGMO Lt. Gen. Anil Chauhan conveyed to his Pakistani counterpart that infiltration has increased in the north areas of Pir Panjal mountain ranges and stressed that Pakistan must initiate steps to prevent it, the statement added.
