Pakistan’s high commissioner in New Delhi has called for the speedy resolution of the standoff between the two countries at the Siachen Glacier, The Hindustan Times reported on Thursday. His statement came days after an avalanche at the glacier claimed the life of an Indian soldier.

“It is very sad and unfortunate that human lives are being lost on Siachen due to very harsh weather conditions,” Abdul Basit told an Indian news channel. “Such incidents only reinforce the need to settle this issue peacefully, amicably and urgently.

“We hope that both the countries take this issue seriously and engage with each other to settle this issue as quickly as possible.”
