ISLAMABAD, January 2 (Itar-Tass) – Pakistani and Indian governments have exchanged information on their countries’ nuclear facilities.
The exchange was effectuated via diplomatic channels in the format of an annual procedure aimed at building up trust between the two countries, whose relationship has been strained since the very moment of their emergence as independent states in the second half of the 1940’s.
According to Pakistani media reports, the sides furnished each other with the lists of nuclear production facilities and installations that fall into the realm of a bilateral agreement prohibiting strikes at the objectives of this kind.
The agreement was signed December 31, 1988, and took effect January 27, 1991.
Ever since then the two countries, which have nuclear armaments and the vehicles for their delivery to the targets, have been exchanging the data regularly.
