India, Pakistan exchange 27th list of nuclear installations

Pakistan India eye peace with US help

The two countries share such lists on January 1 and July 1 every year.

The relations between the two neighbours were strained further after it was reported that Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav's mother and wife were treated badly when they visited him at the Pakistan Foreign Ministry office in Islamabad last month.

A list of 54 Pakistani civilians and 4 fishermen who have completed their sentences in India was also handed over and Islamabad asked to speed up the confirmation of their nationality, it added.

India and Pakistan on Monday exchanged lists of prisoners and nuclear installations, as per existing agreements, even as New Delhi said that it awaits consular access to Kulbhushan Jadhav and other Indian nationals in Pakistan's custody.

Most of the Indian prisoners are fishermen who were arrested while fishing in Pakistan's territorial waters in the Arabian Sea, claimed a previous report released by the country's interior ministry.

National security advisers of India and Pakistan held a "secret" meeting in Thailand, a senior Pakistani official said on Monday.

Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front chief Yasin Malik has taken up the cause of Indian prisoners, including Jadhav, in Pakistan in an open letter to foreign minister Sushma Swaraj.

While a Pakistan side visited India for World T20 in 2016 amid high security arrangements, the PCB did not allow an Under-19 side to tour the neighbours for the U19 Asia Cup in 2017.

The Agreement, which was signed on December 31, 1988, entered into force on January 27, 1991.

Both the countries also handed over the list of prisoners in consonance with the provision of consular access agreement of both countries.
