Indian and Pakistani military commanders have used a telephone hotline to calm tensions after India said mortar shells fired from Pakistan crashed into Indian Kashmir Tuesday. Pakistan denied the charge.
The alleged firing endangered a 14-month cease-fire between the two nuclear rivals on the dividing Line of Control.
India did not retaliate. India's Lieutenant General Bhupinder Singh Thakur says the Indian director general of military operations spoke to his Pakistani counterpart today (Wednesday), telling him about India's concerns.
General Thakur said there will be a series of discussions and he is sure they will create better understanding and restraint on both sides.
General Thakur said the type of shells fired were "available" to the Pakistani army, but they were also available to Kashmiri militants.
