Both India and Pak DGMOs can decide when to meet: Bashir

Pakistan Ambassador to India Salman Bashir today said it was upon the DGMOs of India and Pakistan to meet if they wished to do so and they are best qualified to deal with matters pertaining to their domain.

We have left it to the headquarters of the Director generals of Military Operations (DGMO) that they meet, if they
wish so. The idea basically was that the two DGMOs will themselves decide the date and venue for the meeting.

“The good part is the LOC is quiet and the two militarise have excellent communication and they are best qualified to deal with matters that pertain to their domain,” Bashir, who’s tenure is ending soon, told reporters here.

He was speaking on the sidelines of ‘Pakistan Food Festival’ organised here.

He noted that there have been flag meetings between the two militarises.

“There have been flag meetings, there is good communication. So I think lets not look at form, but look at
the substance,” Bashir said.

Replying to a query on 26/11 Mumbai attack trail, he said, “Both sides are cooperating. We expect the trial to pick up
pace and it has picked up pace. And it is in the interest of justice that all the legal formalities are duly completed and it is happening.”
