New Delhi has not responded to Pakistan’s proposal. India halted bilateral talks with Pakistan after an attack on India’s airbase in Pathankot in January, which India blamed on the Jaish-e-Muhammad of Pakistan.   

Kashmir has been divided into two parts controlled by India and Pakistan since both countries declared independence from Britain in 1947. India and Pakistan have claimed sovereignty of the whole Kashmir. Since 1989 rebel groups have launched attacks on India-controlled Kashmir. India has blamed Pakistan for backing the rebels, an accusation that Pakistan has rejected.
