ISLAMABAD: In the back drop of escalating tension on the Line of Control and Working boundary, the United Nations on Monday expressed concern over clashes between Pakistan and Indian troops in which seven Pakistani soldiers embraced martyrdom when India forces opened unprovoked fire on the LoC.
A UN spokesman urged both the Governments of Pakistan and India to exercise restraint and resolve all their issues through dialogue. He said that current situation on the LoC could only be diffused through dialogue. The United Nations also denied Pakistan’s involvement in Uri attack in which several Indian soldiers were killed.
The UN spokesman further said that tension in Indian-held Kashmir escalated after the martyrdom of Burhan Wani at the hand of Indians forces. INP
