ISLAMABAD, Aug. 22 (Xinhua) -- Pakistani parliament on Thursday passed a unanimous resolution, condemning the recent firing by Indian forces that killed an army captain.
Pakistan army said that one army officer was killed and another soldier injured when Indian forces fired at its posts late Tuesday and Wednesday morning along the Line of Control (LoC), which divides the two countries in the disputed Kashmir region.
The incident was the latest in the on-going escalation of clash along the LoC, which has heightened diplomatic tensions between the two nuclear rivals.
The National Assembly, or lower house of the parliament, passed a unanimous resolution condemning the unprovoked Indian army shelling.
The resolution expressed serious concern over the continued violation of the ceasefire on the LoC by the Indian army and called for constructive and result-oriented peace process.
The House paid tribute to slain Captain Sarfraz and prayed for early recovery of the injured soldier.
The resolution said "the people of the country stand by the civil and military leadership to defend the territories of the country."
Pakistan and India declared a ceasefire in 2003 however they accused each other of violating the ceasefire.
Pakistan Wednesday summoned a senior Indian diplomat to the Foreign Ministry and a protest was lodged over the killing of an army captain by Indian troops.
Tension has heightened at a time when prime ministers of the two countries are scheduled to meet next month in New York on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
