Talking to reporters at Attari Wagah border, DG of Border Security Force (BSF) KK Sharma said, "Atmosphere was such that no exchange of sweets took place with Pakistan Rangers on the occasion of the Republic Day."
He, however, hoped that "in the coming time old tradition of exchanging sweets will be revived soon".
Sharma added that ceasefire violation was the main issue of discussion during flag meeting with Pakistan.
"Both sides agreed that ceasefire violations should be reduced," said Sharma, adding that the BSF never initiates ceasefire violation.
In the recent past, Pakistan has been continuously violating ceasefire at the International Border (IB) and the Line of Control (LoC).
