India-Pakistan May Restore High Commissioners Next After Surprise Deal to Calm Heated Borders

For India, the ceasefire agreement with Pakistan caps two good weeks of diplomacy. It came right after the disengagement announcement with China.

     MARCH 01, 2021: After last week’s surprise ceasefire announcement by India and Pakistan, the two neighbours are seriously considering restoring their respective High Commissioners in the missions in New Delhi and Islamabad, highly placed sources have told News agency. India and Pakistan had recalled their High Commissioners after the Pulwama terror attack in February 2019, and both missions have remained headless since then.

The last time both countries recalled their High Commissioners was at the height of Operation Parakram in 2002. It eventually led to the ceasefire agreement of 2003 between General Musharraf and Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee. It also saw PM Vajpayee travel to Islamabad for the SAARC summit in January 2004. (News 18)
