ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's foreign office Thursday said Indian forces under the cover of unprovoked firing were engaged in constructing bunkers in locations within five hundred metres of the working boundary.

Speaking to media persons at the weekly briefing in Islamabad, foreign office spokeswoman Tasneem Aslam said the construction of the bunkers was in violation of the 2010 agreement between New Delhi and Islamabad, Dawn online reported.

"Pakistan would never permit this construction which is in violation of a bilateral agreement," Aslam was quoted as saying at the briefing for journalists.

"Kashmiri people also live on the other side of the LoC, and Pakistani armed forces always take their safety into consideration when retaliating to Indian firing along the LoC," she said, referring to the situation along the Line of Control (LoC).
