Officials from the Interior and Defense Ministries will brief the Prime Minister over national security, an official statement from the Prime Minister's House stated.

Two Pakistani soldiers died when Indian forces resorted to firing across the LoC on Thursday amid mounting tensions between the two nuclear-armed adversaries over Jammu and Kashmir, the Pakistani Army confirmed.

The meeting will also discuss Indian "atrocities" in the Kashmir Valley and the threats to Pakistan, it said.
