United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres is after the India-Pakistan border situation where there has been firing from both sides. He encourages both nations to hold a dialogue, his spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.

When asked at the daily UN briefing about the incidents, Dujarric said on Monday: “Of course we are aware. We've been following this - what's really going on for the past ten days. And again the Secretary General urges both sides to discuss any open questions. "

When a reporter asked why Guterres was not interested in trying to find a solution to the “crisis”, Djuarric replied that while the good offices of the Guterres are available, “everyone must agree to join the United Nations. And that goes for a mediation endeavor. "

India rejects any third party involvement in problems with Pakistan, claiming that after 1972, the Shimla Agreement between then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, then President of Pakistan, the Kashmir problem is a bilateral matter and the two countries should deal with him directly.

Twelve people died in the killings by the Pakistani side in the past few days, with a civilian killed on Sunday's most recent incident, according to Indian officials. Three of those killed were from the Army and two from the Border Security Force.

Pakistan and the terrorists have also suffered losses.
