Pakistan’s civilian leadership has backed the ceasefire agreement on the border, but said the onus of creating an “enabling environment” for further progress in bilateral relations rests with New Delhi.

Anti-terror ops to go on: Lt Gen Joshi

  • The Army’s northern commander Lt Gen YK Joshi on Saturday said the understanding to strictly adhere to the ceasefire pact would have no bearing on the counter-terrorism operations in J&K.

In his first comments since the militaries of both countries on Thursday agreed to enforce the ceasefire along the LoC, Pakistan PM Imran Khan said they were ready to move forward to resolve “all outstanding issues” with India through dialogue.

“I welcome restoration of ceasefire. The onus of creating an enabling environment for further progress rests with India. It must take steps to meet the long-standing demands of the Kashmiri people according to UNSC resolutions,’’ Khan tweeted.

Though India also maintains that the onus of initiating talks lay with Pakistan by cracking down on terror launch pads, the MEA was yet to react on Khan’s statement.
