Today officers of the rank of Major from both sides exchanged sweets which clearly reflect all is not well and troops of both sides are working to improve their relations.

Wishing Happy Independence Day to PAK Army, Indian Army officers gave sweets and gifts to their PAK counterparts on the eve of their Republic Day while PAK Army also gave sweets to Indian Army officials present there.

The sweets were exchanged at Chakkan-Da-Bagh at 10 AM in which Major S Manhas and Captain SS Sehgal of 21 Bihar represented Indian Army and Major Umer Gul of 653 Mujahid and Major Yasin and Captain Tanveer represented Pak Army.

Indian Army presented a pack of gift comprising sweets and dry fruit to their PAK counterpart s.
