New Delhi: With Imran Khan now taking the lead to run Pakistan, the Pakistani Army on Thursday assured Indian army to respond to information shared in support of anti-terrorist operations in the two country’s.
The neighbouring Army also said that it will now take “prompt action” against any “move by inimical elements” in the proximity of the Line of Control, TOI reported.
The Pakistan Army’s assuarance came during the hotline talks between India’s director-general of military operations Lt General Anil Chauhan and his Pakistani counterpart Maj Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza after the neighbouring country expressed to initiate talks with India.
“The Pak DGMO expressed satisfaction with the measures being taken along the LoC by the rival troops to maintain peace and tranquility. The quantum of ceasefire violations has drastically reduced and augurs well for the future,” said a senior Indian officer.
“The Indian DGMO emphatically stated that infiltration attempts by terrorists were a major cause of concern. He also informed the Pak DGMO that these activities have increased in the areas north of the Pir Panjal mountain ranges. He said Pak must institute measures to prevent infiltration from the launch pads located on its side of the LoC,” he added.
He said that the Indian DGMO has assured Pak that it shall abide by its commitments to uphold the ceasefire understanding of 2003 if Pakistan initiates positive steps to control infiltration and abetment of terrorism in J&K along with agreeing to resolve any ‘issue’ through hotline nad border flag meetings.
And ever since the two DGMOs agreed on May 29 to “fully implement the 2003 ceasefire understanding in letter and spirit”, the daily border firing duels between the two nations have drastically reduced.
