Pakistan rubbishes reports of DGMO level talks

By Vikas

Pakistan on Wednesday rubbished the reports of a possible DGMO level meeting with India, terming such news as "baseless and misleading".

"No meeting of DGMOs of Pakistan and India is being considered as of now as reported by a section of media. The news is baseless and misleading," news agency ANI quoted Pakistan Ministry of Defence, Office of Assistant Director Media, as saying.

India-Pakistan talks

It was earlier reported that Pakistan is examining a proposal for a DGMO level meeting with India after a gap of four years. This move was said to be aimed at reducing tensions along the Line of Control and the Working Boundary through fresh confidence-building measures, the media report had said.

In November, a telephonic conversation between the two DGMOs took place following a request by the Pakistani side.

Pakistan-India DGMOs have a frequent hotline contact, but they last met face-to-face four years ago at Wagah, a village which serves as a transit terminal between Lahore and Amritsar.

December 24, 2013, Wagah meeting had taken place after a break of 14 years. That meeting too was held to discuss ways to ensure peace along the LoC and the Working Boundary.
