Another ceasefire line separates the Indian-controlled state of Jammu and Kashmir from the China-controlled area known as Aksai Chin. Located further east, it is known as the Line of Actual Control (LAC). Ceasefire violations along the LOC had become a routine activity during the Kashmir uprising in the 1990s. After the 2003 ceasefire agreement, they were almost stalled during the 2004-2007 peace process. However, ceasefire violations resumed in 2008, when the peace process derailed. Official statistics from India and Pakistan indicate that 2017 was the worst year since the 2003 ceasefire, when violations surpassed the 2000 mark for the first time. These figures clearly indicate that the 2003 unwritten ceasefire is now over, and India and Pakistan are once again in the pre-2003 situation, when such violations were routine along the LOC. According to Professor Happymon Jacob, it was a miracle that the 2003 ceasefire survived for so long, even though he had not written anything officially between the two countries. While maintaining the link between Pakistan`s ceasefire violations and its alleged support for cross-border terrorism, the MEA said: “India has also strongly protested Pakistan`s continued support for cross-border terrorist infiltration into India, including by supporting cover fire provided by the Pakistani armed forces. Pakistan criticized the construction of the barrier and said it violated both bilateral agreements and relevant UN resolutions on the region.  The European Union supported India`s position, which described the closure as “improving the technical means of controlling the infiltration of terrorists” and also stressed that “the line of control was delineated in accordance with the 1972 shimla agreement”.  Sometimes the ISPR considers it useful to make these Tuesday calls public.
For example, in May 2018, after several weeks of regular CFVs allegedly killing 30 civilians on the Pakistani side, it issued a statement saying that the DGMOs had said on Tuesday that it was “immediately implementing the design of the 2003 ceasefire in the letter and spirit and ensuring that the ceasefire is no longer violated by both sides.” 53 The 830-kilometre ceasefire line, established in the agreement, began from the southernst point of the Chenab River in Jammu.
