The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on Tuesday condemned India’s violation of the Line of Control (LoC) with Pakistan earlier in the day, urging both countries to exercise restraint.

Maj-Gen Ghafoor in a tweet in the early hours of Tuesday had revealed that the “Indian Air Force violated Line of Control”, following which “Pakistan Air Force immediately scrambled” and the Indian aircraft went back.

“The General Secretariat of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation condemned this action against an OIC founding member state,” the Organisation stated in one of a series of tweets.

The Twitter statement went on to say that the OIC “condemned the Indian incursion and aerial violation and dropping of four bombs today, 26 February, 2019.”

It urged both sides to “exercise restraint and avoid any steps that could endanger peace and security in the region”.

The OIC also called upon India and Pakistan “to act responsibly and encouraged them to seek [a] peaceful solution to the current crisis without resort[ing] to use of force”.

It further called on them to “embrace dialogue and work towards de-escalation of [the] current situation as a matter of priority”.
