DG-level talks with Pak bears fruit

  • The incidents of cross-border firing have shown a sharp decline after the border guarding forces of the two countries decided to “pick up the phone before picking up the gun”, when the DG-level talks with Pakistan Rangers concluded in September.

  • There were only three occasions in the past two months when the ceasefire was violated along the International Border by Pakistan. The ceasefire violations till August stood at 589.
  • After the DG level talks of Pakistan Rangers-BSF concluded in September, it was decided that the two forces will communicate and try to resolve any kind of confrontation along the border.
  • All the violations were reported in the Hiranagar-Samba sector of Jammu, which has also seen multiple infiltration attempts.
  • Like the arrangement reached earlier, the ceasefire violations were recorded and the two sides exchanged the incident report with the help of e-mails and facsimile messages.
  • The Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) decided after the DG-level talks was followed and immediately  facsimile was sent as well as an e-mail to record the displeasure
  • The communication lines were also set up to secure the well-being of the border population, who are the worst affected by ceasefire violations and cross-border firing.
  • The two border guarding forces had also decided to initiate new Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) through regular exchange of sporting and cultural troupes and initiation of coordinated patrolling in specific border areas.
  • Ceasefire violations by the neighbouring country along the border in Jammu and Kashmir has remained a major irritant in the bilateral ties between India and Pakistan.
  • Before the Pakistan Rangers delegation came to talks in September, the Pakistani troops had already violated the ceasefire 11 times in September
