Resolution to Border Issues

Resolution to Border Issues
The ceasefire along India-Pakistan border in J&K along the LoC and International Border (IB) came into effect from the intervening night of 25/26 November, 2003. The agreement has been violated by Pakistan from time to time. Appropriate retaliation, as required, to ceasefire violations in carried out by Indian Army along the Line of Control.

There is no commonly delineated Line of Actual Control (LAC) between India and China. There are areas along the border where India and China have differing perceptions of the LAC. Transgression occur on account of both sides undertaking patrolling up to their respective perceptions of the LAC.

Government has repeatedly emphasized, including at the highest level, the need for Pakistan to uphold the sanctity of the Line of Control and abide by the ceasefire agreement of 2003 along the International Border and Line of Control in Jammu & Kashmir.

In addition, all ceasefire violations are taken up with Pakistan military authorities at appropriate level through the established mechanism of hotlines, flag meetings and weekly talks between the Director Generals of Military Operations.

Government regularly takes up any incident of transgression along the LAC with the Chinese side through established mechanisms like flag meetings, Border Personnel Meetings and Working Mechanism for Consultation and Coordination. The two sides agree that peace and tranquillity on the border is the basis for continued expansion of India-China relations.

This information was given by Defence Minister Shri Manohar Parrikar in a written reply to ShriAmbethRajan in Rajya Sabha today.
