Tension between the two nuclear neighbors was raised after Indian warplanes carried out an airstrike in Pakistan on what New Delhi said was a militant training camp, in retaliation for a suicide bombing in Kashmir that killed 40 Indian troops on February 14.
Tensions have been running high between India and Pakistan since the February 14 bomb attack. New Delhi accuses Islamabad of being behind the assault, an allegation the Pakistani government denies.
Islamabad has rejected India's suggestion it was linked to the attack, which it called a matter of "grave concern." 101/202/213
