The first meeting between the Director General Military Operations (DGMO) of Pakistan and India was held at the Wagah border. The object of the meeting was to devise a plan to prevent ceasefire violations at the Line of Control (LoC) in the disputed Himalayan territory of Kashmir.
Pakistan’s DGMO Major General Amir Riaz had invited his Indian counterpart Lieutenant General Vinod Bhatia for a meeting to “strengthen the mechanisms to ensure ceasefire on the LoC,” read a statement issued by the foreign ministry.
This was the first time that the DGMOs from the two nuclear-armed neighbors held face-to-face talks. One brigadier from each side and three lieutenant colonels were also present at the meeting. “The meeting took place in a good atmosphere,” said the Director General of Inter Services Public Relations (DG-ISPR). Decision for the meeting of DGMOs was taken on a political level, he further added.
