Pakistan rubbishes reports of DGMO level talks
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.
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.
