Armies of India and Pakistan Tuesday held a customary exchange of sweets in Teetwal and Uri sectors along the Line of Control (LoC) on the eve of Eid-ul-Fitr.
An official told GNS that the two armies exchanged sweets at Teetwal Crossing on Kishanganga River in Tangdhar in Kupwara and at Kaman Post (Aman Setu), Uri in Baramulla district. “At Teetwal, a contingent of 6 JAK Rifles exchanged sweets with Pakistan Rangers, similarly a contingent of 11 Dogra held the exchange with its counterparts at Kaman Post (Aman Setu)”, the official said.
“Considering the ongoing ceasefire along the border, this gesture is aimed at further enhancing peace and harmony in the union territory”, the official said.
Pertinent to mention here that India and Pakistan armies agreed for a renewed ceasefire along the borders in Jammu and Kashmir in February last year, albeit minor violations, much to the respite of border residents and farmers. (GNS)
