India, Pak DGMOs agree to implement ceasefire

Rawalpindi, May 29: A special hotline contact was established between the Director General Military Operations (DGMO) of India and Pakistan on Tuesday, a media report quoting the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said.

Both DGMOs reviewed the prevailing situation along the Line of Control and working boundary and mutually agreed to undertake sincere measures to improve the existing situation ensuring peace and avoidance of hardships to the civilians along the borders, the statement said.


The officials also agreed to fully implement the ceasefire understanding of 2003 in letter and spirit and to ensure that the ceasefire agreement will not be violated by both sides from now on.

It was also agreed upon that in case of any issue, restraint will be exercised and the matter will be resolved through utilisation of existing mechanisms of hotline contacts and border flag meetings at local commander’s level.

A flurry of border skirmishes between the two countries in the last few weeks left over a dozen dead while forcing lakhs to flee from their homes for safer places.
