India, Pakistan DGMOS Hold Talks On Ceasefire Violation & Terrorism; Agrees To Implement 2003 Pact

In a significant breakthrough after months of cross-border hostilities and firing duels, India and Pakistan on Tuesday agreed to restore peace along the Line of Control (LoC) and International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir by agreeing to honour the ceasefire pact of November 2003.

Indian director-general of military operations Lt General Anil Chauhan and his Pakistani counterpart Major General Sahir Shamshad Mirza decided to “fully implement the 2003 ceasefire understanding in letter and spirit” after the latter sought “a special hotline talk” at 6pm on Tuesday.


Importantly, the two DGsMO agreed that any “issue” will be sought to be resolved through the hotline and border flag meetings.
