Communication channels open between Pakistani, Indian militaries

Islamabad, Oct 7 (IANS) All communication channels between the Indian and Pakistani militaries remain open, the Pakistani military said on Friday.

“All communication channels including the hotline between the two militaries are open,” Asim Bajwa, Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR), told Xinhua news agency.

Stressing the need to resolve issues through dialogue, Bajwa said the Director Generals of Military Operations (DGMOs) of both sides communicated after escalation in cross-border firing at the Line of Control (LoC), which divides Jammu and Kashmir between Pakistan and India.

He said Pakistan wanted peaceful neighbourly relations with all countries in the region.

“That is the policy of the state of Pakistan and that is the policy of the political government and every element of power in the country follows the same policy.”

Bajwa reiterated that India violated the ceasefire along the LoC on September 29 and later claimed to have conducted “surgical strikes” inside Pakistan.

“We did check everything on ground and we found the claim was absolutely false.”

Ties between Pakistan and India worsened after an attack on an Indian military camp in Uri inside India-held Kashmir on September 18 that killed 19 soldiers.

India alleged that Pakistan-backed terrorists were involved in the attack.
