The process of exchanging an annual list began 30 years ago, on January 1, 1992

Continuing with its practice for the past three decades, India and Pakistan on Friday exchanged the list of nuclear installations and facilities, covered under the Agreement on the Prohibition of Attack against Nuclear Installations and Facilities between the two countries.

According to the Ministry of External Affairs, this was done through diplomatic channels simultaneously at New Delhi and Islamabad.

The Agreement, which was signed on December 31, 1988 and entered into force on January 27, 1991, provides, inter alia, that India and Pakistan inform each other of the nuclear installations and facilities to be covered under the Agreement on the first of January of every calendar year.

This was the 30th consecutive exchange of such an annual list between the two countries, the first one having taken place on January 1, 1992.
