Pakistan, India swap nuclear site lists

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan and India Thursday exchanged lists of their nuclear installations under an accord aimed at protecting the sites in case of war, officials said. Both the countries have been exchanging the lists annually since 1992, under an agreement that came into force the previous year.

Foreign office spokesman Muhammad Sadiq said the lists were exchanged at the foreign ministries in Islamabad and New Delhi. Under the agreement, both sides are to refrain from attacking nuclear facilities in the event of a war. The neighbours have also set up a telephone hotline to prevent accidental nuclear conflict.-SANA
