NEW DELHI (Reuters) - Ceasefire violations on India's de-facto border with Pakistan have come down over the past two to three months, India's defence minister A.K. Antony told reporters at a defence exhibition on Thursday.

The nuclear-armed rivals have fought three wars since 1947, two of them over Kashmir. Both control a part of the Muslim-majority region but claim it in full.
