In a significant move after months of cross-border firing, India and Pakistan on 29th May 2018 agreed to retain peace along the Line of Control (LoC) and International Border (IB) in Jammu and Kashmir by agreeing to honor the ceasefire pact of November 2003.
India and Pakistan Director General of Military Operations (DGMOs) established a special hotline contact to which they mutually agreed to undertake sincere measures to improve the present situation across the border-line areas.
India-Pakistan DGMOs agreed to fully implement the ceasefire understanding of 2003 in letter and spirit and to ensure that the ceasefire agreement will not be violated by both sides from now on.
India-Pakistan DGMOs also showed agreement that in case of any issue, restraint will be exercised and the matter will be resolved through utilisation of existing mechanisms of hotline contacts and border flag meetings at local commander's level.
Earlier, Indian Foreign Minister, Sushma Swaraj in her press conference had strictly cleared her point that if Pakistan wants to hold bilateral talks with India, they must have to stop violating ceasefire conditions across the LoC & borders areas.
