Pak envoy summoned  over ceasefire breaches

 The Ministry of External Affairs on Saturday summoned Pakistan’s Deputy High Commissioner to India Syed Haider Shah to register its protest over the ceasefire violations along LoC and International Border.

“The Government registered its strong protest at the fatal casualty of an Indian soldier in unprovoked firing by Pakistan forces on Thursday,” Gopal Baglay, official spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, said in statement.

Senior MEA officials conveyed to the Deputy High Commissioner of Pakistan the Government’s grave concern and strong protest at the continuing incidents of ceasefire violations by the neighbouring country's border guards along the Line of Control and International Border.

“The Deputy High Commissioner of Pakistan was conveyed the Government’s expectation that Pakistan will not take any step detrimental to peace along the LoC and IB and to the security of India,” said Baglay.

Syed Haider Shah was summoned to the MEA just a day after India's Deputy High Commissioner to Pakistan, J P Singh, was called in to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the neighbouring country's government.
