It was all quiet at the Line of Control (LoC) after Indian and Pakistani forces agreed not to violate the ceasefire, army sources said on Thursday.

There was no incident of firing reported from the LoC on Wednesday night, an Army source said.”The Director General of Military Operations (DGMOs) of India and Pakistan Wednesday had agreed not to violate the ceasefire and exercise maximum restraint,” according to an Indian Army spokesperson in New Delhi.

The agreement between the DGMOs came after more than 10 days of heightened border tension between the two countries.
The tensions began on January 6 when a Pakistani soldier was killed allegedly in firing by Indian troops. Two days later, Pakistani soldiers killed two Indian soldiers, on the LoC.

Government sources here said they have taken note of Pakistani foreign minister Hina Rabbani Khar’s offer of talks. The fact that Pakistan did not take up diplomatically the alleged killing of its third soldier is also being seen positively here.
