Following a three-decade old bilateral agreement, India and Pakistan on Monday exchanged the list of nuclear installations and facilities. This was done through diplomatic channels simultaneously at New Delhi and Islamabad.

In a press release issued on January 1, 2018, India’s external affairs ministry said that the two sides exchanged the list under the Agreement on the Prohibition of Attack against Nuclear installations between India and Pakistan.

The agreement, which was signed on December 31, 1988, and entered into force on January 27, 1991, provides that the two countries inform each other of nuclear installations and facilities to be covered under the pact on the first of January of every calendar year.

This is the twenty seventh consecutive exchange of such a list between the two countries, the first one having taken place on January 1, 1992, said the statement.
