The talks between BSF and Pakistan Rangers which began on Thursday in order to put a check for continuous ceasefire violations came out positively with a decision to evolve new protocols at the border. In order to finalize these strategies and protocols the talks have been extended for a day.
The key decisions that were taken during the talks on Thursday were a mechanism of coordinated patrolling and hold sector, battalion and post-level talks on border issues and monitoring ceasefire violations.
In today’s meeting it was expected that the two border guarding forces are expected to frame modalities for the purpose of reduction in the number of ceasefire violations and infiltration.
The Indian delegation led by Director General Devendra Pathak is expecting to build the modalities in a firm way regarding co-ordinated patrolling along the border.
The delegation is also looking forward to conduct friendly matches of team sports like football, hockey, volleyball etc. with the guarding forces to reduce tension through exchange of pleasantries that games can offer.
Meanwhile the Pakistan delegation is likely to meet Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh today between 11:00 am to 11:50 am in order to give a note about the the talks of the first day and it is expected that a joint accord will be signed by both sides on Saturday, the last day for the talks.
In contrast to the speculation the Pakistan delegation did not raise the issue of the arrest of Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists Mohammed Naved of Udhampur attacks and also the issue of activation of the UNMOGIP (UN Military Observer Group in Indian and Pakistan).
