ISLAMABAD, Feb. 27 (Xinhua) -- Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday welcomed the restoration of ceasefire with India along the Line of Control (LoC) in the disputed Kashmir region.

The Pakistani military said on Thursday that Pakistan and India have agreed for strict observance of all agreements, understandings and cease-firing along the LoC and all other sectors.

"I welcome restoration of the ceasefire along the LOC. The onus of creating an enabling environment for further progress rests with India," Khan said on social media.

"We have always stood for peace and remain ready to move forward to resolve all outstanding issues through dialogue," he added.

Pakistan and India had declared a ceasefire along the LoC in 2003. But both sides have routinely exchanged fire and accused each other of ceasefire violations.

The tension between the two sides has been heightened after India lifted the special status for the Indian-controlled Kashmir region in August 2019. Pakistan downgraded its diplomatic relations and suspended trade relations and train service with India in response. Enditem
