UN – UN Chief’s Global Ceasefire Appeal Also Applies on LoC. The United Nations, on Wednesday, said that Secretary-General Antonio Guterres’ recent global appeal for a global ceasefire also applies to the Line-of-Control. In the disputed state of Jammu and Kashmir where India has repeatedly violated the ceasefire.
According to details, the UN chief’s spokesman Stephane Dujarric said this in response to a question at his daily online news briefing. There is no region in the world, in which the Secretary-General’s call for global ceasefire does not apply. That is clear. It is global and it means global.

In an appeal issued on March 23, the UN chief urged warring parties across the world to lay down their weapons. This, in support of the bigger battle against COVID-19. Deeming it the common enemy that is now threatening all of humankind. But that global appeal does not seem to have an effect on India. As it frequently fire across the LoC in violation of the ceasefire.
Pakistan has also been filing complaints against New Delhi’s aggressive acts with the UN Military Observer Group. UNMOGIP observes and reports on ceasefire violations along and across LoC and working boundary Kashmir.
