"The secretary-general has repeatedly called on all concerned to exercise restraint and solve issues peacefully," Nesirky said when asked if Ban had a comment on the fresh incident along the Indian-Pakistan border.
The incident comes over a month after tensions erupted between the two nuclear-armed neighbours after Pakistani troops entered Indian territory and killed two Indian soldiers, beheading one of them.
In the latest ceasefire violation, the Pakistani soldier opened indiscriminate fire injuring two jawans after he was challenged by a patrol party.
In the ensuing encounter the soldier was killed and one AK-56 rifle and some ammunition were recovered from him.
Indian authorities have handed over the body of the Pakistani soldier to its army with military honours.
