Pakistan passes resolution condemning aggression by India at Line of Control - NDTV

New Delhi: The Pakistan National Assembly today passed a resolution accusing the Indian military of "unprovoked aggression" at the Line of Control (LoC).

"The resolution condemns the unprovoked aggression by Indian military forces across the LoC in recent days... It also condemns the attacks on the Pakistan High Commission and the demonstrations outside the PIA offices in New Delhi, and the efforts to prevent the Friendship Bus from proceeding to Pakistan. It deplores the unjustified public vilification of Pakistan in the Indian media," the resolution said.

Pakistan had yesterday claimed PIA offices in Delhi and Mumbai have received security threats and said the issue has been raised with the Indian External Affairs Ministry.

In today's resolution, the National Assembly reiterated that Pakistan "shall continue to extend diplomatic, political and moral support for the just and legitimate struggle of the Kashmiri people for the realisation of their right to self-determination, as enshrined in the UN Security Council resolutions".

Tensions have flared in the Kashmir valley since last week, after Pakistani troops ambushed a patrol party of the Indian Army, killing five soldiers, in the Poonch sector, 200 kilometres south of Srinagar.

In the last four days, Pakistani troops have violated the 2003 ceasefire agreement at the Line of Control (LoC) eight times, leading to heavy exchange of fire.

India expects incidents of ceasefire violation by Pakistan to increase in the next few months ahead of general elections and to coincide with a change at the top in the Pakistani Army.

Defence Ministry sources say they expect Pakistan's Army to step up hostilities at the border with general elections in India just months away. Also, the sources say, Pakistan's Army Chief General Ashfaq Kayani is expected to retire in November and seems to be flexing muscle to send a message to the civilian government in Pakistan, led by newly elected Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

Mr Sharif has tried to ease tensions with India by urging both sides to work swiftly to shore up a 10-year ceasefire threatened by recent attacks, but sources say New Delhi is clear that it can't be "business as usual" after the killing of the five Indian jawans.
