STORY: A 15-member Pakistani delegation on Wednesday (September 09) arrived India for Director General-level talks between the border forces of the two countries last held in 2013.

The high level delegation of Pakistan headed by Director General (DG) of Pakistan Rangers, Major General Umar Farooq Burki, earlier in the day was received at the Wagah border in northern Punjab state by India’s senior paramilitary Border Security Force (BSF) officials.

The delegations from Amritsar city flew down to national capital New Delhi, where Burki was received by Director General of BSF, D K Pathak.

The DG-level talks between BSF and Pakistan Rangers will be headed by Pathak.

Senior officials from the Home Affairs Ministry, Narcotics Control Bureau and Survey of India are also part of the 23 Indian delegates participating in the meeting.

Key issues, including cross-border firing, infiltration, smuggling, are to be discussed during the talks.

The talks will also endeavour to focus on positive issues like different levels of communication, more simultaneous coordinated patrolling and other confidence building measures.

India’s junior interior minister, Kiren Rijiju, said India is expecting positive result from the meet.

“We are expecting that Pakistan will address the issues of concern raised by our DG BSF. So, I think it is a positive note that we have been able to chalk out all the concerns and all the points to be placed before the Pakistani counterpart,? said Rijiju in New Delhi.

The talks were last held in December 2013 in Pakistan’s Lahore city.

The concluding session and signing of joint record of discussions between the two Director Generals will be held on Saturday (September 12).

The talks will be closely watched as India plans to raise issues regarding the unprecedented ceasefire violations along the Line of Control by Pakistan in the wake of National Security Advisory (NSA) talks that failed to take off last month.

Exchanges of sporadic fire are common along the de facto border dividing the region, despite a ceasefire pact signed in 2003. But the extent and intensity of the latest violence and the number of civilian deaths is unusual.

Both India and Pakistan claim all of Kashmir’s Himalayan mountains and fertile valleys. Their shared border is among the most heavily militarised in the world and travel between the two nations is kept to a minimum.

India has for years accused Muslim Pakistan of backing separatist Muslim rebels in India’s part of Kashmir. Pakistan denies arming the militants saying it only gives them diplomatic support in the face of human rights abuses by Indian forces.
