Pakistani troops today violated the ceasefire along the LoC in Uri sector of Jammu and Kashmir, prompting retaliatory fire from the Indian Army, an official said.
Construction work on the Afghan section of an $8bn natural gas pipeline that will link the energy-rich Turkmenistan through Afghanistan to Pakistan and India launched.
The move is part of a broader U.S. strategy to pressure Pakistan to cut alleged links to Islamist militants waging chaos in neighboring Afghanistan.
China refuted a report that it is secretly holding talks with Baloch militants in Pakistan for over 5 years to protect its USD 60 bn CPEC.
Pakistan summoned India's Deputy High Commissioner JP Singh here for the fourth time in a month to condemn the "unprovoked firing" by Indian troops.
India said it was "strongly committed" to the USD 10 billion trans-national TAPI pipeline project that will help ease energy shortages in South Asia.
The Indian and Pakistani armies traded heavy fire on the Line of Control (LoC) in Uri sector, the Defence Ministry said.
"I think the proxy game is very well played by our western neighbour, supported by our northern border (China) to keep the area disturbed," he said.
Pakistan claimed that it had foiled US efforts to place it on a terrorist financing watch-list after the country was granted a 3-month reprieve by FATF.
A Pakistani military helicopter today came within 300 metres of the Line of Control in the Pakistan-occupied territory near Poonch sector in Jammu and Kashmir.
