A statement issued by the DG ISPR on Friday said that a ceasefire was agreed to protect Kashmiris living on both sides of the LoC.

The statement further said that neither side should consider ceasefire as its strength or weakness of the other. News of the ceasefire on the Line of Control came to light on February 27, 2021. Even after that, the two countries have been accusing each other of violating the ceasefire, while there have been clashes on the LOC.

According to ANI news agency, the Indian Army Chief had said on Thursday that the ceasefire with Pakistan was still in place as India had discussed the position of power.

Indian Army Chief General Manoj Makand Nirvana had said that the developments on the northern border have been properly identified and necessary steps are being taken for this, including the best boats on the ground as well as modern Technology support will also be included.

It may be recalled that the first ceasefire agreement on the Line of Control was signed between Pakistan and India in 2003, when Mir Zafarullah Jamali was the Prime Minister and Pervez Musharraf was the President. The agreement lasted for four years, and in 2007 shootings began.

In 2018, the two countries once again discussed the ceasefire, while in February 2021, the two countries announced a ceasefire agreement. On Thursday, the Indian Army chief was referring to the same ceasefire agreement.
