India, Pakistan DGMOs agree to follow ceasefire understanding of 2003
A special hotline contact was established between the Director General of Military Operations (DGMO) of Pakistan and India on Tuesday.
Both DGMOs reviewed the prevailing situation along the Line of Control and Working Boundary and mutually agreed to undertake sincere measures to improve the existing situation ensuring peace and avoidance of hardships to the civilians along the borders," a statement said.
The DGMOs have agreed to fully implement the ceasefire understanding of 2003 in letter and spirit and to ensure that the ceasefire agreement will not be violated by both sides from now on.
The officials also agreed that in case of any issue, restraint will be exercised and the matter will be resolved through utilisation of existing mechanisms of hotline contacts and border flag meetings at local commander's level.
The latest round of discussion came a month after similar discussions were held between the two countries over the issue of Pakistan-sponsored terrorism in the Kashmir Valley.
The unscheduled DGMO-level talks were held on April 27, on a request by Pakistan, wherein the Pakistani DGMO accused Indian security forces of resorting to unprovoked firing along LoC, the Indian Army had said in a statement.
