Pakistan to allow Indian flights in its air space
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

Islamabad, Pakistan-AP -- Indian airlines will once again be seen in the sky over Pakistan.

Pakistani Presdent Pervez Musharrah (pur-VEHZ' moo-SHAH'-ruhv) says Pakistan will agree to resuming overflights by Indian planes.

Musharraf calls it a "positive gesture" to help settle disputes which plagued the two neighbors for decades.

Pakistan's state news agency reported the issue would be discussed during two days of talks in New Delhi starting tomorrow.

India and Pakistan severed most transportation links last year, over tensions that nearly led them another war. There haven't been flights between the two neighbors in nearly two years.

But India's prime minister called a few months ago for the nations to settle their long-standing differences. Since, some bus links have been restored. And the two began a cease-fire last week on the line dividing the Kashmir region.
