Pak-India trade impacted over LoC tension


Trade of fruits and vegetables between Pakistan and India has been impacted as the tension between the two South Asian neighbours over the Line of Control (LoC) is escalating with every passing day. Trade between the two countries has completely stopped at the Chakoti border. On Monday, India violated the ceasefire at the LoC on three occasions by opening unprovoked fire. The deputy high commissioner to Pakistan was summoned to the foreign office where he was informed about the Islamabad’s concern over the repeated ceasefire violations. The situation between Pakistan and India remained tense after New Delhi accused the Pakistan army of killing five Indian soldiers at the LoC, an allegation which was strongly denied by Islamabad.
