Tribune News Service

New Delhi, January 1
India and Pakistan today exchanged lists of nuclear installations and facilities, a practice which the two nuclear rivals have adhered to for the 14th consecutive year.

The lists were exchanged through diplomatic channels, the Ministry of External Affairs said.

The two countries have been exchanging the lists of their nuclear installations under a bilateral agreement on the prohibition of attack against nuclear installations and facilities. The agreement was signed on December 31, 1988, and came into force on January 27, 1991.

The agreement binds the two countries to inform each other of the nuclear installations and facilities on January 1 of every calendar year.

The first such exchange took place on January 1, 1992.

Meanwhile, top officials of India and Pakistan will meet here on January 4 to hold a two-day talks on the hydro-power project being built by India on the Chenab at Baglihar in Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistanís stand is that the project is being constructed in violation of the 1960 Indus Water Treaty, which has granted the riparian rights to it over the Chenab, besides the Indus and the Jhelum. India has refuted it saying that the treaty provided a provision for building hydro-power projects.
