Srinagar, August 27: India and Pakistan on Wednesday held first commander-level flag meeting to defuse the situation on the border, since the increased incidents of continuous ceasefire violations.

The flag meeting lasted 45 minutes during which India raised the issue of Pakistan targeting civilians along the Line of Control (LoC) posts.

The meeting took place between the Pak rangers and the Border Security Force (BSF) along the International Border (IB) in Pargwal forward belt in Akhnoor sector of Jammu.

On Tuesday, the Directors General of Military Operations (DGMO) of the two sides- Lt Gen PR Kumar from India and Major General Amir Riaz from Pakistan, had agreed to hold the flag meeting at the field level, despite the fact that India had lodged a protest with Pakistan over its frequent violations of the bilateral ceasefire agreement.

The DGMO-level talks between India and Pakistan are held on a weekly basis on every Tuesday when both sides discuss various issues along the border.

Meanwhile, there was pandemonium in the Jammu and Kashmir legislative council here Wednesday over the tabling of a resolution seeking resumption of India-Pakistan talks.
