Less than a week after India carried out 'surgical strikes' across the LoC in three sectors to dismantle terror camps in PoK, the National Security Advisors of India and Pakistan spoke on reducing tensions along the Line of Control between the two countries on Monday.

According to Adviser to Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz, Pakistan's NSA Nasser Janjua and his Indian counterpart Ajit Doval spoke on diffusing tension between the two countries.

"Both the officials stressed on the need to establish contact to reduce tensions along the Line of Control," said Aziz.

According to Aziz, India was escalating tensions with Pakistan at the Line of Control "to deflect the attention of the world from Kashmir issue".

He said that Pakistan wanted to bring down tensions with India.

"Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif had indicated quite clearly that till the issue of Kashmir was not resolved, tensions across the border would remain."

Tension escalated between India and Pakistan following the recent terror attacks in Jammu and Kashmir and the surgical strikes carried out by the Indian Army across the Line of Control (LoC) to destroy terror launch pads in Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).
