As the row continues over the killing of five soldiers in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir, Chief Minister Omar Abdullah on Sunday said Pakistan should stop violating the ceasefire agreement it has with India along the Line of Control (LoC).
"Whether the ceasefire violation is being done to trigger greater infiltration, (or) to distract attention from the failures of their own administration, I can't say. But it is something we want they (Pakistan) should stop," Omar told reporters here.
Omar said Pakistan should follow the terms of the ceasefire agreed between the two countries in November, 2003.
"Given the agreement... about a ceasefire along the LoC, we want Pakistan to follow it," he said.
"As far as ceasefire violations are concerned, obviously they are a matter of concern for us. Any tension along the LoC is detrimental to the interests of Jammu and Kashmir as a whole and, in particular, to those who live in the area," he said.
"The fact is that the ceasefire violations are largely taking place at the behest of Pakistan. It is not India that is violating the ceasefire, it is Pakistan that is violating the ceasefire and forcing India to respond," he added.
