India, Pakistan hold flag meeting on LoC


Pakistan and India on Wednesday held a flag meeting on the Line of Control (LoC) in the disputed Jammu and Kashmir region to ensure that both armies respect their 2003 ceasefire-agreement.
Indian military spokesman SN Acharya said the meeting at the level of battalion commanders took place at the Chakan-Da-Bagh crossing in Poonch district.
“Both delegations were led by colonel-level officers who discussed ceasefire violations and the need to abide by the tenets of the existing ceasefire agreement between the two countries,” said the spokesman.
“The talks were held in a cordial environment and both sides have agreed to give due consideration to the issues raised by each other.”
He said the meeting was proposed by the Indian side with a view to restore peace in Jammu and Kashmir.
The bilateral ceasefire that came into force between India and Pakistan in November 2003 had brought normalcy to the lives of people living along the border.
