Pakistan suspends trade with India following revocation of Jammu & Kashmir autonomy

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has announced measures to suspend bilateral trade with India. This follows India’s revocation of Article 370, a constitutional provision that has given autonomy to Jammu and Kashmir, the Indian-administered state, for 7 decades. In 2018, trade between the two states accounted for approximately 3% of Pakistan’s and 0.3% of India’s total trade.

Other measures to downgrade the states’ diplomatic relations include recalling Pakistan’s ambassador from New Delhi, expelling India’s envoy, and taking the matter to the UN Security Council.
