Despite being the perpetrator itself, the neighboring Pakistan on Saturday summoned Indian Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh in Islamabad for the fifth time in a month.
The summon had been to condemn the alleged firing across Line of Control by Indian forces.
The Pakistan Foreign Office said Director General (SA & SAARC) Mohammad Faisal summoned Singh over unprovoked ceasefire violations by Indian forces on 23 February in Nikial sector.
Pakistan Foreign Office had earlier summoned India’s deputy high commissioner on 5, 15, 20 and 22 February.
It was conveyed that the alleged ceasefire violations by India are a threat to regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation.
