Pak, India urged to include tourism in cross line of control trade list

Srinagar: In occupied Kashmir, Travel Agents’ Association of Kashmir (TAAK) President Rauf Tramboo has called for promoting tourism across the Line of Control (LoC).

According to Kashmir Media Service, in a statement in Srinagar, the TAAK President said the two countries should allow travel and tourism across the LoC. He hoped that extension to cross-LoC trade from two to four days a week would pave way to promote tourism, besides deepening trade relations between the two sides.

“Already, there is a list of items that are traded across the LoC. We appeal to the two countries to include travel and tourism in this list,” he said. Tramboo said the non-inclusion of travel and tourism in the LoC trade list has disappointed the tour operators and travel agents of Kashmir.

He said: “The unhindered travel between the two sides will not only boost the people to people contact but also encourage the two sides to overcome the impediments in other areas of relationship.”
