The United Nations (UN) late Thursday night expressed its concern over the increasing tensions between Pakistan and India over the long-standing issue of Kashmir and the Line of Control (LoC), Geo News reported.
UN Secretary-General António Guterres is at present analysing the situation in Kashmir, UN spokesperson Stéphane Dujarric said, adding that the intergovernmental organisation is also perturbed by India’s firing at the LoC, which, thereby, violated the ceasefire agreement.
Unprovoked firing on the part of Indian armed forces on the LoC earlier killed two Kashmiris and injured six others.
In this regard, the Foreign Office of Pakistan summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner J.P. Singh to file a protest over the LoC violation and sent a demarche pertaining to the matter.
