ISLAMABAD: Pakistan's Foreign Office on Tuesday said that it did not want to vitiate the already tense situation along the Line of Control (LoC) by making irresponsible statements like those made by the Indian army chief.

“Pakistan attaches great importance to the ongoing peace process with India and is committed to resolve the issue of LoC violations under the agreed mechanism,” said the Foreign Office spokesman.

He also reiterated Pakistan's earlier offer to hold a thorough investigation into the recent violations of LoC by the United Nations Military Observer's Group for India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP).

Meanwhile, the Foreign Office spokesman welcomed the statement by the Indian Minister for External Affairs who expressed his government's commitment to ensure that the peace process should not be derailed.

The spokesperson underlined Pakistan's desire to continue the dialogue process with India in a sustained and result-oriented manner.

“It is important that both sides make serious efforts to avoid distractions in our common efforts towards creating a peaceful environment,” the spokesman said.
