Despite the failure of NSA level talks between nuclear neighbours India and Pakistan, top commanders of Pakistan Rangers and Indian Border Security Force (BSF) are scheduled to meet in New Delhi from September 9 to 13.
“As per border ground rules 1961, a routine, biannual meeting of Inspector General BSF and Director General Pakistan Rangers is scheduled to take place in New Delhi starting September 9, 2015,” Dawn News quoted a spokesperson for Pakistan Rangers as saying.
Reports said that Pakistan would take up the matter of “unprovoked” Indian firing along the Line of Control (LoC) and Working Boundary, and the killing of its civilians, the spokesperson added. “He said that matters related to smuggling and other border issues are also likely to be discussed at the meeting,” the reports said.
A meeting was earlier held between representatives of Rangers and BSF at Wagah border to coordinate modalities of the September meeting and to finalise the meeting’s agenda.
