    UN observers would be going to the border region.
    Two countries have gone to war three times, twice over Kashmir.


    Indian shots in a disputed border region with Pakistan have killed 12 civilians and wounded 52 in Pakistan this month, according to a statement released on Sunday (12) at the Foreign Ministry.

    Sartaj Aziz, advisor to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to issues of national security and foreign relations, said that UN observers were heading to the border region to monitor violations of the ceasefire.

    He also made an appeal to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon on Saturday for help to resolve the longstanding dispute with India over Kashmir, according to a statement released on Sunday.

    Since it became independent from Britain in 1947, the two countries that have nuclear weapons, went to war three times, two of them on account of Kashmir.

    Pakistan replaced on the table a proposal for a plebiscite among the inhabitants of the region, as advocated by UN resolution 1948 India opposes vote.
