China, on Friday, called on India and Pakistan to exercise restraint and refrain from taking actions which could escalate tension between the two sides and peacefully resolve disputes through dialogue.
“As a neighbor to both India and Pakistan, we call on both sides to exercise, retrain and refrain from taking actions that will escalate tensions,” Chinese Foreign Ministry’s Spokesperson Geng Shuang said during his regular briefing while responding to a question regarding the exchange of fire between Indian and Pakistani armies on the Line Of Control (LoC).
On December 26, firing on the LoC led to casualties on both sides.
“We have noted the relevant reports and we are following the situation,” he said while commenting on latest situation on LOC.
As neighbour to both India and Pakistan, the Chinese official called on both sides to exercise restraint and refrain from taking actions that would escalate tensions, peacefully resolve disputes through dialogue and jointly maintain regional peace and stability.
The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) on Thursday said two soldiers of Pakistan Army were killed and in the Dewa sector along the LoC.
