ISLAMABAD: A flag meeting between the Pakistani and Indian army commanders was being held on Monday at the Line of Control (LOC) to discuss the recent violations of the ceasefire agreement, Daily Sitara Sindh News reported.

The Pakistani army brigadier in Poonch sector was also participating in the meeting.

The Pakistani commanders rejected the allegations against them levelled by their Indian counterparts.

The Indian commanders had accused their Pakistani counterparts for firing across the border, while the latter registered their own protest against the Indian violations of the ceasefire at LOC, according to the military sources.

The Pakistani army demanded that India must comply with the ceasefire agreement.

Earlier on Monday, the Indian Army chief, General Bikram Singh had threatened aggressive action against any provocation by the Pakistani army.

“The attack on January 8 was premeditated, a pre-planned activity. Such an operation requires planning, detailed reconnaissance,” General Bikram Singh told a news conference in New Delhi.

“I expect all my commanders at the Line of Control to be both aggressive and offensive in the face of provocation and fire,” he added.

Pakistan had also proposed a third party probe into the ceasefire violations at LOC recently but India rejected the proposal by saying that it did not wish to “internationalise” the issue.
