Pakistan, India agree to reduce tensions

(VOVworld) - Top Pakistani diplomat Sartaj Aziz said on Monday that Pakistan and India have agreed to reduce tensions after their National Security Advisors spoke over the phone, their first contact since the Uri attack in India and India's retaliatory strikes against terror launch pads across the Line of Control (LoC). Aziz said Pakistan and India agreed to reduce tensions on the LoC and focus on Kashmir.

Tensions between India and Pakistan spiked after an attack in the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir killed 19 Indian soldiers. Tensions increased when the Indian Army confirmed last Thursday that it had crossed the Line of Control (LoC) and conducted strikes on several terrorist launch pads, inflicting significant casualties.
