India-Pak flag meet likely today

Amid high tension triggered by heavy firing and shelling along Indo-Pak border in Jammu frontier during past fortnight, Indian and Pakistani troops are likely to hold a flag meeting on Monday to de-escalate tension.

“The flag meeting is likely to be held tomorrow (with Pakistan Rangers) to defuse tension and end ceasefire violations along International Border,” a senior BSF officer said.

“We are making all efforts to hold the flag meeting to defuse the tension and response from other side has already been received,” he said.

Nearly 200 km-long International Border (IB) in Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts in Jammu frontier witnessed heavy shelling of mortars and rockets and firing from automatic weapons since October 14 on a daily basis not only on Border Out Posts (BoPs) but also in dozens of border villages. Two jawans were killed and 32 people injured.
