Government has put on hold a proposal for meeting between the DGMOs of India and Pakistan to discuss the issue of ceasefire violations on the Line of Control and the International Border.
The decision was taken by the Government in view of the advice by the armed forces that the Pakistan side was not showing much interest in having any such meeting, official sources said here.
In view of this, the Government will not pursue the proposal of meeting between the two sides and decided to put it on hold, they said.
The DGMO-level meeting was first proposed during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's talks with his Pakistan counterpart Nawaz Sharif in the US.
But, the Pakistan side was also not responding subsequently, the sources said.
DGMOs of the two sides talk to each other on Tuesdays and discuss the issue of ceasefire violations on the LoC and the IB. The flag meetings to be held at local formation commander level are mostly fixed during these talks.
This year, there have been more than 150 ceasefire violations by the Pakistan side and they have also carried out successful attacks inside the Indian territory on some occasions.
The Indian Army's preparedness on the LoC has also been questioned after raids by Border Action Teams (BATs) of the Pakistan Army in January and August.
