India today made it implicit to Pakistan that its Army reserved the right to retaliate appropriately to any incident of violation of ceasefire but is sincere in its effort of maintaining peace and tranquillity along the Line of Control (LC) provided there was reciprocity.
 
During Director General of Military Operations (DGMO)-level talks held between the two countries today at the behest of Pakistan, the Pakistani DGMO raised the issues of targeting of Pakistani Army troops which resulted in the death of four Pakistani soldiers and one civilian in Athmuqam Sector of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir opposite Indian Keren Sector, Kupwara district, an official press release said.
 
"Indian DGMO in response highlighted that all ceasefire violations were initiated by Pakistan Army and the Indian Army only responded appropriately to them. Apart from these, firing by Indian troops was initiated against armed intruders when attempting to infiltrate from close proximity of Pak posts along the Line of Control (LC).
 
"DGMO also put across emphatically that the trend of infiltration along the LC continued with active support of Pak forward posts impacting peace and tranquillity along the LC and also the internal security situation. This was evident from continued attempts of sniping and targeting of our troops undertaken through cross border actions duly supported by Pakistani Army troops.
 
"DGMO made it implicit that Indian Army reserved the right to retaliate appropriately to any incident of violation of ceasefire but is sincere in its effort of maintaining peace and tranquillity along the LC provided there was reciprocity," the release added.
