New Delhi, Jan 16 (IANS) Indian and Pakistani forces have agreed not to violate the ceasefire on the Line of Control, an officer said Wednesday.
"The DGMOs (Director General of Military Operations) of India and Pakistan had a 10 minute talk in the morning and agreed not to violate the ceasefire and exercise maximum restraint," an Indian Army spokesperson told IANS.
The DGMOs agreed not to allow the situation along the LoC, which divides Kashmir between India and Pakistan, to escalate, he added.
The agreement between the DGMOs comes after more than 10 days of heightened border tension between the two countries.
The tensions began Jan 6 when a Pakistani soldier was killed allegedly in firing by Indian troops. Two days later, Pakistani soldiers brutally killed two Indian soldiers, including beheading one of them, on the LoC. India has voiced its protest over the killing.
