Other issues included terrorist activities from across the border, digging of tunnels, and other matters related to border management, the BSF is learned to have said. “It was decided to re-energise instant communication between the field commanders, whenever required, to resolve the operational matters.”

“The meeting was held in a cordial, positive and constructive atmosphere in which both sides agreed for expeditious implementation of the decisions taken in the earlier DG level talks, besides committing to maintaining peace and harmony along the international border,” the BSF said.
