The two countries exchange the lists of nuclear sites on the first day of the new year under an agreement signed in 1988 and came into force in January 1991.

The statement said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs handed over the list of Pakistan's nuclear installations and facilities to an officer of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad at the Foreign Office on Saturday morning.

The Indian side also handed over their list to an officer of the Pakistan High Commission at the Ministry of External Affairs in New Delhi, it said.

The officials said the two sides also exchanged lists of prisoners held in each other's jails under the provisions of a separate agreement. The two countries are required to exchange lists of prisoners twice a year, reports said.
