A meeting was held between the officials of paramilitary troops frontier corps (FC) and tribal elders in Chaman area of Balochistan along the border, the FC officials said Wednesday.

The meeting was organized by FC officials, the district administration and tribal elders to discuss the matter of fencing at the Pakistan-Afghanistan border in Chaman.
