Iran has urged Pakistan and India to avoid any reckless moves in the Kashmir dispute that could escalate into a direct military confrontation and be devastating for the entire region.

“Military approaches in this region will further complicate the situation,” Iran’s armed forces chief, Major General Mohammad Baqeri, told his Pakistani counterpart, Qamar Javed Bajwa, during a phone conversation on Saturday. The commander also urged the parties to maintain calm and avoid making any “hasty decisions.” (RT)
