India, Pakistan agree to hold brigade commanders' meeting

Wagah/Attari Dec 24 : India and Pakistan Tuesday agreed to hold a meeting of their brigade commanders in the near future as part of measures to prevent ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.


The two countries had signed a ceasefire agreement in November 2003.

The decision was taken at a meeting of Directors General of Military Operations (DGMO) of the two countries at Wagah on the Pakistan side of the border.

According to a joint statement released here, the two sides also decided to inform each other if any innocent civilian inadvertently crossed the LoC to ensure his or her early return.

"To carry forward the positive spirit of DGMO meeting, two flag meetings between brigade commanders will be held on the LoC in the near future to ensure maintenance of peace and tranquillity," the joint statement said.

The Indian delegation was headed by Lt. Gen. Vinod Bhatia, DGMO, and the Pakistan side by his counterpart, Maj. Gen. Amir Riaz.
