Quarterly Monitoring Brief

Reviewing Indo-Pak Bilateral Relations: Quarterly Monitoring Brief April 2018 – June 2018

India and Pakistan seemed to be making progress in their bilateral relations as tensions abated at the end of March when both countries released a coordinated statement reiterating their decision to adhere to the 1992 code of conduct for diplomatic staff. This positive turn in relations was short-lived, and from April to June 2018, bilateral relations once again entered a phase of détente. The quarter was punctuated by a few positive statements and decisions, resulting in nothing more than a few temporary moments of respite.

This monitoring brief recaps significant developments in Indo-Pak relations between April 2018 and June 2018. It is part of a series of monitoring briefs on Indo-Pak bilateral developments.
