Last week, India and Pakistan issued a joint statement to strictly observe all agreements on ceasefire along the LoC and other sectors, and to address “each other’s core issues and concerns”. It was their first joint statement in over eight years.
In this episode, we speak to Nirupama Subramaniun, who reports on South Asian affairs for the Indian Express, about the significance of this statement. She explains how it came about, the possibilities that it can open up for the two countries, and how it will impact the lives of those living near the Line of Control (LOC).
