New Delhi, Sept 22 (ANI): Officials from India and Pakistan will meet here today to discuss the modalities for launching cross Line-of-Control (LoC) trade and other Confidence-Building Measures (CBMs) related to Jammu and Kashmir.

In an effort to ensure early start of new measures, the Joint Working Group on cross-LoC and CBMs, comprising senior officials, will seek to exchange ideas of the two sides.

Issue like the launch of commerce on the Srinagar-Muzaffarabad route will be discussed during the talks.

India has been keen on launching the cross-LoC trade since the proposal was first mooted in 2005, but the two countries have failed to reach a consensus on issues like items to be traded. (ANI)
