Pakistan, India Exchange Nuclear Information

Pakistan and India have ushered in the new year by exchanging lists of their civilian nuclear facilities.

Pakistan's Foreign Ministry Tuesday said the two countries participated in the annual exchange, as part of a 1998 agreement prohibiting attacks on each other's nuclear installations.

The lists of nuclear facilities were handed over at India and Pakistan's respective foreign ministries in New Delhi and Islamabad.

India and Pakistan have fought three wars since partition in 1947. But relations have improved since the two countries launched a slow moving peace process in 2004 to resolve their disputes, including the conflict over Kashmir.

India and Pakistan both conducted nuclear weapons tests in 1998.

Some information for this report was provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
