Kashmir border ceasefire has definitely contributed to feeling of peace: Indian army chief

Chief of Army Staff Gen M M Naravane has said that the holding of the ceasefire between Indian and Pakistani armies along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir for the last three months has contributed to a feeling of peace and security.

In an interview to PTI he said it is the first step towards a long road of normalisation of ties between the two countries.

Gen Naravane, at the same time, said the ceasefire does not mean that India’s fight against terrorism has come to a halt and noted that there was no reason to believe that the terror infrastructure along the LoC has been dismantled by the Pakistan Army.

The Army Chief also said that consistency in the reduction in infiltration attempts and terrorist incidents in Jammu and Kashmir will go a long way in assuring India of Pakistani intent to foster good neighbourly relations.
