The Wing Commander of the Chenab Rangers, Nadeem, and the Battalion Commander of the BSF, Rajesh Gupta, met at Suchetgarh of the Sialkot sector on the Pakistani soil and expressed the hope that the ceasefire would be permanent. They exchanged notes on the implementation of the ceasefire.
A number of other officials from both countries were present during the hour-long meeting. Reports from Sialkot said the commanders discussed various issues of mutual interest apart from the routine matters related to the border situation.
In a related development, Pakistan has told a visiting European parliamentary delegation that the fencing of the Line of Control (LoC) by India has jeopardised the ongoing peace process. "If India does not discontinue fencing of the LoC it may cause a setback to the peace efforts," the Pakistan commander, Iftikhar Ali Khan, told the seven-member delegation in the town of Chakothi.
