"The meeting is going to be held in the near future and both sides are in touch in this regard," said Khalilullah while holding a weekly briefing at the Foreign Office on Thursday.

In a pre-dawn attack on January 2 on the airbase, seven Indian security officials were martyred while six terrorists were killed.

There has been heightened vigil along the Indo-Pak border after the Pathankot attack. The BSF had been criticised for failing to curb the infiltrations and also not acting enough against the drug mafia which thrives along this border.

The BSF has decided to step up its vigil and ensure that infiltrations come to a halt. The defence ministry too after the Pathankot attack had said that those who fail in their duties along the border must be made accountable.
