Pakistan, India Ease Travel Restrictions

Call it a historic step forward in their relationship


NEW DELHI – Pakistan and India sealed an agreement to ease tough visa restrictions for travellers on Friday.

The accord was signed by Interior Minister Rehman Malik and his Indian counterpart, weeks before the two cricket-loving nations play their first series in India since the Mumbai attacks.

"This is not only historic but this is a step forward for the two countries in the progress of peace," said Malik during a three-day visit to New Delhi.
