Tensions between the two countries threatened to spill over into all-out conflict earlier this year over the disputed region of Kashmir. Such is the security risk to the region that the President of Azad Kashmir - the Pakistan administered region - Masood Khan, warned of a potentially catastrophic situation in the region.
The region has seen numerous skirmishes on both sides of the border since India decided to remove the special status afforded to India’s only majority-Muslim region.
Speaking to US publication, Newsweek, Mr Khan said: “We have beefed up security, we remain vigilant.
“India with its aggressive and aggravating steps has pushed the region to the brink of war.
“We are in a state of war right now, but the situation could escalate even further.

“Any military exchange will not remain limited, it can and we fear it would escalate to the nuclear level, that is tantamount to nuclear armageddon.”
The Kashmiri President’s remarks come soon after Pakistan’s President, Imran Khan issued a call for support during his speech at the United Nations General Assembly in New York last week.
Escalations increased earlier this year following a horrific terror attack by militants in the Kashmir region.
The terrible attack left 44 Indian paramilitary dead as a result which led to the Indian Prime Minister Modi, calling an airstrike on a camp run by militant organisation Jaish-e-Mohammed.
