NEW DELHI (Web Desk) - Indian Army Chief Gen M M Naravane said that the ceasefire between Pakistan and India along the Line of Control (LoC) has created an atmosphere of peace and stability.

According to the India’s state news agency, during an interview, the ceasefire has been the first step towards a long road of normalisation of bilateral ties.

Gen Naravane said adherence to the ceasefire pact on the LoC has contributed to the overall feeling of peace and security in the civilian population.

“Tensions on the LoC cause hardships to the people residing on the both sides of the border,” Indian General said.

Referring to the ceasefire, Gen Naravane said there was not a single incident of cross-border firing by the two armies after the pact came into effect.

He said there was a renewed emphasis on observing the ceasefire agreement of 2003 due to the heavy losses of civilian and military lives across the LoC.

In a major development for peace in the region, Pakistan and India had agreed to strict adherence to the 2003 ceasefire at the LoC and other border sectors in an announcement on February 25.
