Pakistan, India exchange lists of N-installations

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan and India on Saturday exchanged lists of their nuclear installations and facilities in accordance with a bilateral agreement that prohibits attacks on each other atomic assets.
The South Asian nuclear rivals exchanged the lists despite lingering tensions in the wake of Mumbai attacks that occurred back in November 2008 and brought the Indo-Pak peace dialogue to halt.
“The governments of Pakistan and India exchanged lists of their respective nuclear installations and facilities in accordance with Article-II of the Agreement on Prohibition of Attacks against Nuclear Installations and Facilities between Pakistan and India of 31 December 1988,” Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said in a statement.
“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs handed over the list of Pakistan’s nuclear installations and facilities to an officer of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad at the Foreign Office. The Indian side handed over their list to an officer of the Pakistan High Commission at the Ministry of External Affairs in New Delhi,” he said.
The neighbouring states also exchanged lists of prisoners held in each other’s jails under the provisions of a separate agreement.
