Indian foreign minister Salman Khurshid termed the flare-up very "unfortunate" and a "matter of serious concern". He further said that this should be taken up by the cabinet.
To the latest string of unprovoked firing by the Pakistani military, the Indian Army retaliated firmly, say sources.
"We will handle it (the new flare-up) with the greatest sagacity, greatest firmness and determination to protect both the sovereignty and the safety and security of our citizens," said the Indian foreign minister.
The clashes have aggravated just after the 'peace talks' between Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Indian Primier Manmohan Singh last month. Although, Pakistan has denied all allegations that it is behind these "unprovoked firings", there are serious evidences proving the same.
