Iran: Pakistan-India Ceasefire Agreement Important Step towards Peace

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh welcomed an agreement by Pakistan and India to strictly observe a ceasefire along the de facto border in the disputed Kashmir region.

"Tehran considers the joint statement by Islamabad and New Delhi on ceasefire as a positive step toward increasing the peace and stability in Southern Asia," Khatibzadeh said on Sunday.

The Iranian foreign ministry spokesman expressed the hope that the two countries would take further measures to boost regional peace, stability, and welfare.

Earlier this week, Pakistan and India agreed on strict observance of all agreements, understandings, and cease firing along the de facto border in disputed Kashmir after months of dispute.

The two sides have accused each other of being responsible for ceasefire violations. The two sides regularly exchange fire along the ceasefire line known as the Line of Control (LoC) that has separated the two countries for decades.
