Director Generals of Military Operations (DGMO) of India and Pakistan reportedly had a discussion over ceasefire violations going on from the past few months.
An Army official said that the DGMOs from both the sides reportedly talk every Tuesday over the phone and discuss the LoC and IB.

There have been regular instances of ceasefire violations along the Line of Control (LoC) and International Border (IB) by Pakistan in the recent months.
