UNITED NATIONS: UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is monitoring the situation at the India-Pakistan border following the recent upsurge in violence along the disputed border and has urged restraint on the part of both governments.

Eleven civilians were reportedly killed (8 Pakistanis and 3 Indians) in the latest cross-border firing.

“We continue to monitor situation about the reports of recent escalation of violence along the Line of Control between India and Pakistan,” UN spokesman Stefane Djuarric said on Monday.

In an earlier statement, UN Chief called upon the governments of India and Pakistan to exercise maximum restraint and take all feasible steps to ensure the protection of civilians.

Mr Ban again urged India and Pakistan to resolve their differences through dialogue.

Tension has mounted between the two countries after talks between the national security advisers of the two counties were called off after India refused to discuss Kashmir during the meeting.
