Today In History: India, Pakistan Reopened Key Rail Link

By: Paige Hubbard 

Over a decade ago, Pakistan and India agreed to reopen a rail link that severed as a transit nearly 40 years earlier between Munabao in Rajasthan state and Khokrapar in southern Pakistan.

The deal was said to be one of the most important transportation agreements between the two countries since air links resumed.

The conversation lasted for two days before negotiators from the Pakistani capital and India agreed to resume the rail service along their Southern Border.

The Khokrapar-Munabao rail crossing, was closed since the 1965 Indo-Pakistani war, links Pakistan’s largest city, Karachi, with India’s largest, Bombay.
