Pakistan, India key army commanders meet for peace

Lahore, Dec 24 (IANS) Pakistan and India's key army commanders met Tuesday in a bid to ease tension and ensure peace on their border.

Lahore, Dec 24 — Pakistan and India's key army commanders met Tuesday in a bid to ease tension and ensure peace on their border.

Pakistan's Director General Military Operations (DGMO) Major General Aamer Riaz and his Indian counterpart Lieutenant General Vinod Bhatia met at the Wagah-Attari border, which Geo News described as a mechanism to ease tension and ensure peace at the Line of Control (LoC).

A brigadier and three lieutenant colonels from each side were also present at the meeting.

The issues included tension on the Line of Control (LoC) with a focus on maintaining ceasefire and bringing normalcy.

The two DGMOs usually talk on the hotline every Tuesday.

Pakistan's Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR) said in a statement that the decision to hold the meeting between the Pakistan and Indian DGMOs was taken on political level.

The DGMO of Pakistan invited his Indian counterpart for a meeting to strengthen the mechanisms for ensuring a ceasefire along the LoC and the proposal was accepted by India.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Pakistani premier Nawaz Sharif at their meeting Sep 29 on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly session in New York decided on the DGMO meting in view of the frequent violations of ceasefire along the LoC. The two sides agreed on the ceasefire in November 2003.

The LoC has seen several ceasefire violations and violent incidents in recent months. Five Indian soldiers were killed in an attack in August, leading to tension along the LoC.

Associated Press of Pakistan said it is expected that the meeting would work towards reducing tensions along the line that divides Kashmir into two halves.
