(Reuters)India and Pakistan on Wednesday held a flag meeting on the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir to ensure that both armies respect their 2003 ceasefire agreement.

Military spokesman S.N. Acharya said the meeting at the level of Battalion Commanders took place at the Chakan-Da-Bagh crossing in Poonch district.

"The meeting started at around 11:30 am on Wednesday during which the delegations led by Colonel level Officers from both sides discussed ceasefire violations and the need to abide by the tenets of the existing ceasefire agreement between the two countries," official spokesperson said.

According to spokesperson the talks were held in a cordial environment and both sides have agreed to give due consideration to the issues raised by the other side.

"This meeting was proposed by the Indian side with an aim to restore peace and calm on the Line of Control, he added.

Earlier Commanders level flag meeting was held on Octroi Post along International Border in Ranbir Singh Pura (R S Pura) Sector, on Oct 29 last in which two sides agreed to 'no more fire' and to maintain the sanctity of ceasefire agreement after heavy border firing for over a fortnight along Indo-Pak International Border.

India has been accusing Pakistan of violating the ceasefire agreement frequently since the beginning of this year. Five Indian soldiers were killed Aug 6 by Pakistani troops who crossed over into Indian territory.

Repeated use of automatic weapons and mortar shells by Pakistan on the international border in Jammu, Samba and Kathua districts have also forced many villagers to migrate.

However, the situation has become calm now and many families have returned to their villages.
