Pakistan said on Friday that it wants a peaceful resolution of all issues with India. It also includes the Kashmir issue and the recent agreement on ceasefire is in line with the stance mentioned by Islamabad. Significantly, as an important step to reduce tensions, the forces of India and Pakistan said on Thursday that they have agreed to strictly abide by all agreements on ceasefire in the Line of Control (LOC) and other areas.
