K J M Varma in Islamabad
Citing "extremely belligerent moves" on the Line of Control in the wake of Tuesday's
terrorist attack near Jammu in India, Pakistan is planning to seek UN Security Council's intervention to bring down heightening Indo-Pak tensions, a media report said on Sunday.
Quoting sources, English daily Dawn said Pakistan has kept UN Secretary General Kofi Annan informed on India's "warlike actions" and on the ongoing heavy shelling across the LoC.
"We have asked all our high commissioners and ambassadors to keep the host governments posted on the developing situation and brief them on our position with regard to India's accusations" of Islamabad's support to cross-border terrorism, the paper quoted sources as saying.
"Pakistan has also tried its best to dispel the wrong impression in the foreign capitals that Islamabad is soft-peddling its policy of eliminating religious extremism," a senior official said.
He said Pakistan has told its friends clearly that it was next to impossible to stop the infiltration of Kashmiris across the LoC, as most of them are members of divided families living on both sides of the LoC.
