Indian Army said today that Director General Military Operations (GMO) level talks were held today at the behest of Pakistan DGMO.

Pleasantries were exchanged between the DGMOs on the occasion of Independence Day of both the countries, the Indian Army said.

During the meeting, the Pakistan DGMO expressed satisfaction on the measures being taken along the Line of Control(LoC) by troops to maintain peace and tranquillity.

The Pakistan DGMO assured the Indian official that the Pak Army would take prompt action against any move by "inimical elements" in the proximity of the LoC, the Indian Army said, adding that Pak Army said it would also respond to information shared by the Indian side thereby facilitating the conduct of anti-terrorist operations.

The Indian DGMO told the Pak DGMO that infiltration attempts by terrorists were a major cause of concern, the Army said in a statement. The Indian DGMO informed Pakistan that activities had "increased in the areas north of Pir Panjal Mountain Ranges."

"Pakistan must institute measures to prevent infiltration from the launch pads located on the side of the LoC," the Indian DGMO told the Pakistan DGMO.
