He further informed the house that in 2018 alone, Indian forces violated the truce ceasefire along with Line of Control (LoC) and the Working Boundary more than 170 times.
“In a 2015 accord between Pakistan and India, it was decided that the countries would find a long-lasting solution to their differences through dialogue,” said the foreign minister and added, “unfortunately, India never responded well to our will of establishing a cordial relationship between the two neighbouring nations.”
He further reiterated that Pakistan wanted a concrete solution for all the issues, including Kashmir, which remained a hurdle in creating a smooth relationship with India
“The increasing human rights violations by the Indian forces in Kashmir are a matter to grave concern”, the minister added.
