According to Foreign Office, the Pakistani DG MO has invited Indian counterpart to meet him on 24th December, which the Indian DG MO has accepted.
Situation on the Line of Control will be discussed in the meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to ensure the mechanism of ceasefire on LoC.
The meeting is the continuation of the progress of the meeting of both prime minister at New York in September. During the meeting of Manmohan Singh and Nawaz Sharif it was decided to form some mechanism by following which the ceasefire agreement of 2003 should remain intact.
DG MO Major General Amir Riaz has invited his Indian counterpart on 24th December so that the situation at LoC could be improved and incidents of provoked firing on both sides should be stopped and peace should be restored.
According to Inter Services Public Relations (ISRR), the decision has been made to discuss the growing tension on Line of Control besides violation of the line from Indian troops.
Many civilians were injured in the unprovoked firing of Indian troops on the border villages of Pakistan. The meeting, if held, is likely to be placed in Pakistan as the invitation suggest.
The move came hours after cabinet’s committee on national security has decided to deescalate tension on eastern border with India and on LoC.
