Indo-Pak flag-meeting today
JAMMU: India and Pakistan will hold a 'brigade commander' level flag meeting along the LoC in Poonch tomorrow to discuss the recent ceasefire violations by the latter.
"Brigade Commanders's flag meeting is being held tomorrow at Chakan-Da-Bagh LoC point in Poonch sector at 1100 hours. Pak has agreed to the meeting", a senior Army officer told PTI.
The Indian Army had sent a hotline message to Pakistan Army and called for a Brigade commander-level flag meeting to discuss the issues of increasing incidents of firing and ceasefire violations in Poonch sector on June 19.
Usually, a commandant-level flag meeting is held on the LoC to sort out the differences, but this time we have called for Brigade Commander-level meeting, he said.
Earlier, Pakistan had cancelled Commandant (Col) level meeting on Chakan-Da-Bagh crossing point in Poonch on June 16 without assigning any reason.
Pakistani troops this time directly fired on Army troops guarding the borderline in Poonch unlike in the past when they used to target posts, the official said adding it was a serious issue.
The trade via the Chakan-Da-Bagh crossing point remains suspended,awaiting de-escalation of the situation in the Krishna Ghati Sector.
