SRINAGAR, June 22: Days after a long exchange of fire at LoC came to halt, India and Pakistan will hold a ‘brigade commander’ level flag meeting on Saturday to discuss issues.
“Brigade Commanders’s flag meeting is being held tomorrow at Chakan-Da-Bagh LoC point in Poonch sector at 11 am. Pakistan has agreed to the meeting”, a senior army officer was quoted by wire agencies as saying.
Trouble erupted in the region when two Indian soldiers were killed and four others wounded by gunfire at the border.
India has been blaming Pakistan for the firing duel, saying it had led to the incident with “sniper fire” that killed the soldiers.
Pakistan has been denying any involvement saying it could be India’s internal matter.
Trade through Chakan-Da-Bagh transit point remains suspended after Pakistan recently cancelled a flag meeting allegedly without citing any reasons.
“Usually, a commandant-level flag meeting is held on the LoC to sort out the differences, but this time we have called for Brigade Commander-level meeting,” the army officer said.
