India, Pakistan DGMOs to meet on Dec 24 to discuss LoC violations

NEW DELHI: The director-generals of military operations of India and Pakistan will finally meet on December 24 in a bid to work out a protocol to defuse tensions and uphold the ceasefire along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir.

Officials on Tuesday said the Indian DGMO Vinod Bhatia had accepted the offer of his Pakistani counterpart major-general Amir Riaz over the hotline to hold the meeting on the Pakistani side of the Wagah border in Punjab on December 24.

The DGMOs will discuss measures to "strengthen" the ceasefire that came into force along the 198-km International Border (IB) in J&K, the 778-km Line of Control (LoC) and the 110-km Actual Ground Position Line (AGPL) in the Siachen-Saltoro Ridge on November 26, 2003, as a major CBM between India and Pakistan.

The ceasefire, which by and large held in the earlier years, was virtually blown to smithereens over the last several months, with the two armies exchanging fire almost on a daily basis. Though matters have cooled down now, India has recorded as many as 195 ceasefire violations this year along the LoC, with another 50 violations along the IB.

The decision to hold the DGMO-level meeting was taken during the talks between Manmohan Singh and Nawaz Sharif in New York in September, when the hostilities were at their peak along the LoC.

But India was cold to Pakistan's move to include civilian diplomats in the DGMO-level dialogue mechanism, holding that such a process was best left to the two militaries without turning it into a diplomatic one.With Pakistan now agreeing to the Indian condition, the two DGMOs will meet on December 24.
