ISLAMABAD: Pakistan today asked India to honour its commitment regarding observance of ceasefire on the Line of Control (LoC), a day after it summoned a top Indian diplomat here over the killing of a solider in alleged firing by Indian troops.
"Certainly, there is a disconnect between what is told to us and the ground realities. Let me emphasise that we expect India to honour the commitments given to Pakistan regarding observance of ceasefire," Foreign Office (FO) spokesman Qazi Khalilullah said at the weekly press briefing here.
Indian Deputy High Commissioner J P Singh was summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by the Director General (South Asia & SAARC) yesterday and a protest was lodged over the latest unprovoked ceasefire violations by India at the LoC.
Khalilullah today also touched upon the Kashmir issue, saying: "I wish to underscore that Kashmir is an internationally recognised dispute. Statements from India cannot change its status."
He said that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif will visit New York to attend the UN annual session and is scheduled to address the General Assembly on September 30.
About a possible meeting between Sharif and Indian counterpart Narendra Modi, he added: "I do not have anything to share with you in this regard."
Pakistan stands for reforms in the United Nations with consensus of all member states but opposed to the addition of new permanent members to the Security Council, he added about the coveted body that India seeks to be a part of.
On Monday, the UN General Assembly adopted a negotiating text by consensus for the long-pending Security Council reforms, boosting India's bid for a permanent seat in the revamped world body.
