Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi, accompanied by Chief of Army Staff Qamar Javed Bajwa, visited the Line of Control (LoC) on Friday, said a statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
The premier visited the Chirikot sector of the LoC and was also accompanied by Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider.
During the visit, the prime minister was briefed by the general officer commanding the area and was informed of ceasefire violations by Indian forces.
Abbasi condemned the unprofessional approach, of targetting civilians residing in the area, by Indian forces and reiterated that Pakistan would continue to provide political, moral and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri people for their struggle.
While interacting with the troops deployed in the skirmish-prone area, Prime Minister Abbasi acknowledged and appreciated their sacrifices in defending the country and for protecting the people of Azad Kashmir.
“No other army in the world is parallel to Pak Army. Restoration of peace against terrorism despite our commitments against perpetual threat from eastern border is a milestone achievement and together we shall take it towards enduring peace and stability,” the ISPR quoted the prime minister as saying.
