Pak envoy Basit blames India for ceasefire violations

New Delhi, Aug 16 : Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit, who was summoned by the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) over the recent ceasefire violations, today blamed India for the cross border firings and said that the Pakistan Government is concerned about it.

“We are concerned about the ceasefire violations. In the month of July and August, there have been close to around 70 ceasefire violations from this side of the working boundary. We are obviously very concerned about it,” Basit told the media here.

“Our side would like to have a more effective mechanism to determine who indulges in unprovoked firing,” he added.

Heavy shelling and firing by Pakistani troops along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir’s Poonch district yesterday left at least six civilians dead and 15 others injured. (ANI)
