This is the third phone call between the two leaders since India revoked Kashmir’s autonomous status on August 5. Tensions between Pakistan and India flared up after the move. India has curtailed movement and shut down phones and the internet in Kashmir, bringing in tens of thousands of troops to turn the main city of Srinagar into a fortress.

They are visiting Pakistan as a result of direct telephone calls by Prime Minister Imran Khan to the crown princes of the two countries in the past few days.
