"In the past six-seven months, we have tried to better our ties with India so that peace can prevail. But it seems that they do not understand this language," Defence Minister Khawaja Asif told reporters outside the Parliament.            

"I believe, we will now communicate with India in the language they understand," he said.              

Asif's remarks came after four Pakistani rangers were killed in BSF's strong retaliation after a jawan of the force lost his life in heavy firing from the other side on a patrol on December 31 along the International Border in Jammu and Kashmir's Samba district.

"Day before yesterday's incident has been taken up at every level from the army's side. The issue was taken up at the very location of firing, then we established contact from one post to the other," Asif said.     

"After that we took up the issue at the level of rangers and BSF, than at the DGMO level, we also explored the diplomatic channel. We have taken up the issue at every possible level," he said.
