The newly-built Integrated Check Post at the Wagah border on Pakistani side is fully secure and there is no threat to it, the chief of Pakistan's border guarding force said on Monday.

"The ICP is fully secure and there is no threat to it from anywhere, including Pakistani outlawed outfits," Pakistan Rangers Director General (Sindh) Rizwan Akhtar, who is leading a high-level delegation of Pakistan Rangers and the country's Interior ministry for the five-day border-level talks with the BSF in New Delhi, told media in Attari, Amritsar.

The 18-member delegation crossed over to India through the Wagah border in the morning.

Akhtar told media that during the meeting issues related to security of international borders on both sides, repatriation of Indo-Pak prisoners and drug smuggling will be discussed.

The top brass of both the border guarding forces are meeting in Delhi for the first time and the talks are aimed at thrashing out a host of issues including recent incidents of firing and ceasefire violations by Pakistan along the Indo-Pak border.
