Islamabad: Hours after Indian Army chief Gen Bikram Singh warned against any ceasefire violations on the LoC, the Pakistani military today said such "provocative" statements were counterproductive.

A statement issued by the Pakistani military's media wing claimed Singh's statement was "contrary to the facts on ground".

"Such accusation and provocative statements are regrettable and counterproductive," the statement quoted chief military spokesman Maj Gen Asim Bajwa as saying.

The Pakistan Army respects the ceasefire agreement put in place along the Line of Control (LoC) in 2003 "in letter and spirit", it said.

"After the meeting between the Directors General of Military Operations (DGMOs) on December 24, 2013, the situation along the LoC has improved considerably," it added.
