Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Tuesday said the Indian Army and the Border Security Force (BSF) had constantly carried out appropriate retaliations to the ceasefire violations by Pakistan. “In addition, all violations of ceasefire are taken up with Pakistan authorities at the appropriate level through the established mechanism of hotlines, flag meetings as well as weekly talks between the Directorate Generals of Military Operations of the two countries,” Parrikar said in a written reply to Janata Dal (United) leader K.C. Tyagi in the Rajya Sabha.
He further stated that the BSF, too, held talks at various levels with its counterpart viz. Pakistan Rangers. “Diplomatically, India has repeatedly emphasized, including at the highest level, the need for Pakistan to uphold the sanctity of the Line of Control (LoC) and the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir as its obligations emanating from the Simla Agreement and the Lahore Declaration,” he added.
