Sharif said alleged ceasefire violations by India along the Line of Control (LoC) was not only an aggression against Kashmiris but also a serious threat to regional peace and security. "The violations (by India) have increased and spread from LoC to the Working Boundary. I think they are serious threat to the peace of the region," he said.

Sharif said that Pakistan was continuously keeping the international community abreast of these provocations. "We will continue to highlight the issue of Kashmir until it is resolved according to wishes of people of Kashmir," he said.
