The World : India, Pakistan in Accord

December 18, 1985

India and Pakistan, longtime adversaries who have accused each other of developing nuclear weapons, pledged not to attack each other's nuclear facilities and announced other steps to improve relations. The agreement came after a meeting in New Delhi between Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and Pakistani President Zia ul-Haq. Zia said that if the moves to improve relations succeed, Pakistan will review its weapons purchases from the United States. The two sides, which have fought three wars, agreed to try to eliminate military clashes on a Himalayan glacier in disputed Kashmir.
