call for a ceasefire: Antonio Guterres’s ceasefire call is global: a UN spokesman when Pakistan was involved in unreasonable shootings with the LoC | Instant News

UNITED NATIONS: The ceasefire appeal by UN head Antonio Guterres amid the global coronavirus pandemic and must be applied everywhere, including along the Control Line, his spokesman said, when Pakistani troops were involved in firing for no reason along LoC in Jammu and Kashmir this week that killed one person Indian National.

India on Friday registered a strong protest Pakistan for the killing of an Indian citizen in a shooting not carried out by Pakistani forces along the LoC in the Poonch district on Thursday.

“The Secretary General’s call for a global ceasefire is exactly like that. It is global, and must be applied everywhere,” UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said on Friday.

He responded to questions about Pakistan’s unreasonable shootings on the Line of Control even when the head of the United Nations had submitted a request for a global ceasefire soon after Co-19 pandemic.

On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, Pakistani Army targeting the Qasba, Kirni, Shapur and Mankote sectors of Poonch, Indian officials said.

There have been frequent incidents of violation of the ceasefire by Pakistan since India announced its decision to withdraw the special status of Jammu and Kashmir and divide it into two united territories in August last year.

Pakistan often uses ceasefire violations to drive militants to the Indian side. Indian forces also retaliated against Pakistan’s actions under a pursuit policy.

The Pakistani army on Thursday claimed that a 34-year-old Pakistani soldier and two women were killed in an alleged shot by Indian troops crossing the Control Line (LoC) on April 29.

Dujarric added that he had not received the latest news from his UN colleagues in the United Nations Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) about the situation.

UNMOGIP, which was founded in January 1949, observes and reports violations of ceasefire throughout and throughout the LoC and the Work Limit between the two neighbors in Jammu and Kashmir, and reports on developments that could lead to violations of the ceasefire.

India, however, stated that UNMOGIP had “exceeded its relevance” after the Simla Agreement was signed between the two countries in 1972.
