India and Pakistan agree to stop firing across disputed Kashmir border

 The Director Generals of Military Operations (DGsMO) of Indian and Pakistan have announced that they agreed to stop firing across the Kashmir border in an attempt to secure sustainable peace in the region.

A ceasefire between India-administered and Pakistan-controlled Kashmir has technically been in place since 2003. However, both countries have regularly violated the truce.

The disputed Kashmir border has been the site of frequent gunfire, with Pakistan claiming Indian forces fired across the Line of Control (LoC), which divides the two countries, at least 175 times, leading to eight civilian casualties. In 2020, India alleged that Pakistan violated border agreements up to 5,133 times, causing the deaths of 22 civilians and 24 soldiers, as well as a further 197 injuries.

“In the interest of achieving mutually beneficial and sustainable peace along the borders, the two DGsMO agreed to address each other’s core issues and concerns which have propensity to disturb peace and lead to violence,” the two militaries announced in a joint statement on Thursday.
