Islamabad (Agencies): The Indian army has requested Pakistan to stop the use of artillery fire.

However, it is not immediately clear if Pakistan has accepted India’s request but development suggests that the two countries might be discussing the options of de-escalating tensions along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary.

It also indicates that the channel of communications that were suspended during the military standoff in February may have been restored.
