LAHORE: Pakistani troops distributed sweets to Indian troops at the Wagah border to celebrate Independence Day.
Officer Sector Commander Shaukat Ali from the Pakistan Rangers presented sweets to Indian Border Security Forces Commandant Sudeep during a heavily-attended special parade and ceremony commemorating Aug 14 at Wagah. The two men also exchanged a hug and good wishes.
The Pakistani flag was raised high at the ceremony as the air rang out with cries of Pakistan Zindabad on Sunday morning.
Called 'mithai diplomacy', giving out sweets on Pakistan and India's respective Independence Days (and other special occasions) is a regular tradition at Wagah, despite tensions between the two countries.
