Pakistan, India swap lists of nuclear sites

Nuclear rivals India and Pakistan exchanged lists of their nuclear sites Sunday in accordance with a 1988 agreement that prohibits the neighboring countries from attacking the locations, officials in Islamabad said.

Pakistan's foreign ministry confirmed that it turned in its list to the Indian High Commission, and received the same from New Delhi. There was no immediate comment from Indian officials.

Both countries recently returned to talks on conventional and nuclear weapons, Indian officials have said.

No major developments were expected from the high-level talks, which were held in Islamabad last week. The discussions were aimed at building confidence between the two nuclear powers, according to a December statement from the Indian Ministry of External Affairs.

    I dont know, trusting either one of these countries could be a huge mistake! They havent shown their selves to be very reliable in the past! Look how pakistan kept the location of bin laden a secret while taking money from the US?

    If you really want to get down to it, I don't trust any of those ME countries. They all seem to have the same agenda.
    Look at Libya. We cleared the way for them to alow al qeada in. I think that's what's up with these other countries too.

    India is not the same as the rest. They are Hindu and Buddist. Culture is entirely different. If Pakistan and India can do this, it is a good sign of progress
