India and Pakistan on Thursday exchanged a list of their nuclear installations under a bilateral agreement that bars them from attacking each other's atomic facilities.
This is the 24th consecutive exchange of such lists between the two countries, the first one having taken place on January 1, 1992.
"India and Pakistan today exchanged, through diplomatic channels simultaneously at New Delhi and Islamabad, the list of nuclear installations and facilities covered under the Agreement on the Prohibition of Attack against Nuclear installations," the External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson said in New Delhi.
The agreement, which was signed on December 31, 1988 and entered into force on January 27, 1991, says that the two countries inform each other of nuclear installations and facilities to be covered under the Agreement on January 1 every year.
Pakistan and India also exchanged the lists of prisoners under the Consular Access Agreement between the two nations.
