NEW DELHI, Jan. 1 (UPI) — India and Pakistan exchanged lists Wednesday of their nuclear installations as part of a 1988 agreement that prohibits the two arch-rival neighbors from attacking each others nuclear facilities.

The Press Trust of India reported that the Pakistan list contained six installations, most of the nuclear power plants, while India retained its earlier list of 11 of its nuclear installations.

The two rival neighbors each year swap lists of their nuclear installations on the New Year Day for 12 years.

The Agreement on the Prohibition of Attack against Nuclear Installations and Facilities between India and Pakistan was signed on Dec. 31, 1988, and effected on Jan. 27, 1991.

Under this bilateral agreement, the two nations are obliged to inform each other on each new year day about their nuclear installations and facilities.

The first exchange of lists took place in 1992, the PTI reported.
