On the occasion of Eid, India and Pakistan armies held a flag meeting and exchanged sweets at the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir on Wednesday.

The Indian Army says that it was done as "a gesture for promoting Peace, Harmony and Compassion in the true spirit of the festival".

Armies of both the countries exchanged sweets at Kaman Aman Setu, Uri and Tithwal Crossing on Kishanganga River in Tangdhar and Kupwara. The armies also exchanged sweets at Poonch-Rawalakot Crossing Point and Mendhar-Hotspring Crossing Point in Poonch district.

The event has been held when both the Armies have been strictly following the Ceasefire Agreement on the Line of Control.

The ceremony is seen as an enhanced confidence building measure in the backdrop of ongoing ceasefire between both the countries
