LAHORE-Pakistan and India have mutually agreed to maintain status quo along the working boundary which includes that no defence-related work will be undertaken by either side. This was stated by Director General Pakistan Rangers Maj Gen Yaqub Khan while briefing the media men after three-day long Pakistan-India bi-annual meeting  held here on Thursday. The meeting was attended by 18-member delegation of Indian BSF headed by Additional Inspector General Border Security Force (BSF), U K Bansal while Maj. Gen.Yaqub Khan DG Rangers Punjab represented Pakistan Rangers side. DG Rangers said that Pakistan and India meeting was held between the delegation of both the neighbouring countries from October 13-16 under an umbrella of mutual trust and confidence. He said that these talks are a regular feature and held twice a year, alternatively in Pakistan and India. Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) started between both the govts at all levels has not only changed the atmosphere at bilateral level but also brought normalcy on the borders, he added. He said that the meeting remained very productive. On one hand this forum has provided an opportunity to return innocent inadvertent border crossers and on the other it has enhanced mutual understanding between the two border forces, he said. He said that there has been a sincere endeavour from both the sides to encourage the local commanders at grass-root level to mutually resolve minor issues. He further said that another endeavour has been made through this forum to minimise the miseries of the families of those individuals who continue to remain in jails of India and Pakistan, inspite of completing their terms of punishment. This obviously is due to complicated repatriation procedures, he maintained. He said that both sides have agreed to stop ceasefire violations and to avoid such incidents for peace and tranquility in the region. Killing of innocent civilians was matter of great concern, therefore, both sides have agreed to instruct troops to refrain from such actions in future, which leads to loss of precious lives, he added. He said that both sides have agreed to stop drug trafficking through borders. Immediate repatriation process was also agreed by both sides, he added. 'Both sides will complete the joint verification, repair and maintenance of boundary pillars along International Border. Pakistan reconstructed or repaired 61 boundary pillars while India repaired 16 since last bi-annual meeting held from March 26-29, 2008'.  He said that both sides have agreed to undertake efforts for repatriation of fishermen. Maj.Gen.Yaqub Khan said that 102 Pakistanis were in Indian jails while U K Bansal said that he has no list about the Indian prisoners in Pakistani jails. He said that they have also arrived at a consensus to prevent fishermen not to enter waters of either side.
