New Delhi, October 26: Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar on Monday said Pakistan’s intention behind cross-border firing and shelling might be to “get attention” as it continued to violate the ceasefire on the border. “Sometimes, the intent of all firing is to get attention,” Parrikar said. The minister said most ceasefire violations of late were reported on the intertiol border, which is guarded by Border Security Force.

“Mostly, the ceasefire violations are on the intertiol border; I don’t have direct details,” the minister said while interacting with jourlists on the sidelines of the val Commanders’ Conference here. Parrikar said there was a period when the ceasefire violations went up along the Line of Control (LoC), though there was no rise in ceasefire violations along the LoC at present.

“There is no increase in firing along the LoC (at present),” he said. About Pakistan’s absence from the list of countries participating in the Intertiol Fleet Review, the minister said Pakistan would be welcome to participate. “We welcome them, but there is no confirmation so far,” said Parrikar.
