India, Pakistan troops exchange Diwali sweets at Wagah Border
Attari-Wagah (Punjab) , Nov 7 : The troops at the Border Security Force (BSF) and Pakistan Rangers on Wednesday exchanged sweets at the Wagah Border in Punjab on the occasion of Diwali.
Earlier, the two sides had exchanged sweets on the occasion of Eid al-Adha and India's 72nd Independence Day.
However, there was no exchange of greetings on Republic Day this year due to rising incidents of ceasefire violations and border tension.
The tradition of exchanging sweets had briefly come to halt in 2016 in the wake of an attack on Indian Amry camp in Uri.
