New Delhi: The customary exchange of Eid sweets between the Border Security Force (BSF) and its Pakistani counterpart, Pakistan Rangers, did not take place along the India-Pakistan border on Monday, officials said.

The event was given a miss as the relations between the two countries are strained at present, they added.

However, the force exchanged sweets with its Bangladeshi counterpart, Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB), all along the eastern front.

India and Bangladesh share a 4,096-km-long international border.

“BSF and BGB share a very cordial relationship. Both the countries share a similar culture, traditions and festivals. The warmth and bonding between the countries and border-guarding forces reflect during several occasions, when they share the joy of festivals, including during Eid,” a statement issued by the south Bengal frontier of the BSF said.
