Bengaluru: The Indian Army has thrown open a full-fledged cafeteria near Kaman Aman Setu. It is the last post of Indian Army in Uri sector of LoC in Kashmir, reports India Today. 

It should be noted that this move comes at a time when there is a ceasefire agreement between India and Pakistan, announced February this year.  

“We have opened the coffee shop for everyone visiting the Kaman Post for motivational purposes for the people of Jammu and Kashmir. After taking a selfie at the bridge, people can come and have snacks here and take home several souvenirs," Vishal Dev, Major, Indian Army, was quoted as saying. 

The local population is gung-ho about the new move as it inspires peace initiatives. 

“After the division of two countries, people who were related and were friends, became distant. They were divided and always wanted peace to prevail so they can see each other. It is possible with peace. This cafeteria seems like a good beginning for better things. We are thankful for opening this cafeteria,” a local Qazi Ahmad was quoted by the website. 

“It is a good thing if peace prevails and trade should also open up. A lot of people were impacted after its closure. This will not only be a good news for the people of Uri but also the people of entire Kashmir," Faisal Ejaz, a resident of Uri, was quoted.
