Prime Minister Imran Khan on Saturday, welcoming the ceasefire announced on the Line of Control (LoC), said Pakistan has always stood for peace and remains "ready to move forward to resolve all outstanding issues through dialogue".

"The onus of creating an enabling environment for further progress rests with India," Tribune reported. 

The DGMOs of Pakistan and India agreed to enforce the ceasefire – which came into effect on February 25 – on the disputed border between the two nuclear-armed neighbours.

Meanwhile, Pakistan's Foreign Office on Friday insisted that there was no change in the government’s policy on the Kashmir dispute.

“There is no change in Pakistan’s principled and long-held position on the Jammu & Kashmir dispute,” FO spokesman Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said at the weekly media briefing while replying to questions about the agreement reached with India following the ‘hotline contact’ between directors general of military operations (DGMOs) of the two countries.

The Pakistan government had earlier laid down conditions for engaging with India, which specifically included the reversal of August 2019 action of "annexing occupied Jammu and Kashmir" and the end of "human rights violations and atrocities against Kashmiri people", Dawn reported.
