India and Pakistan have agreed to hold a Brigade Commander level flag meeting at Chakan-Da-Bagh Crossing in Poonch district of Jammu region on Monday to resolve the issue of ceasefire violations, official sources said.

The meeting is likely to held at Chakan-Da-Bagh crossing on Indian side on Monday morning and its main focus will be to "address ceasefire violations" along Line of Control (LOC) in Jammu and Kashmir and loss of civilian lives in cross-border firing, they said.

"The field commanders will discuss the modalities to defuse the tense situation on borders and other related issues, while trade-related matters may also come up for discussion," the sources said,

The two countries recently held Director General-level talks and vowed to "honour the sanctity of the ceasefire." However during the last few days, sources said, the forces on two sides exchanged heavy firing on LoC in Balakote and Sabzianya sectors of Poonch district which resulted in causalities and damage on either side.
