NEW DELHI: After a hiatus of almost two years the first official dialogue between Pakistan Rangers and their Indian counterparts, the Border Security Force (BSF), is scheduled to be held in New Delhi on July 1. The five-day discussions are aimed at developing a formal communication mechanism between the two forces in light of recent escalations following unprovoked firing across the border. “The BSF and Pakistan Rangers have a history of tense relations and both sides have accused each other of attacking civilians in recent ceasefire violations. The talks will provide an opportunity to discuss problems and agree on mutually workable solutions”, official sources said.
