The Indian government has lifted an advisory warning tourists not to visit disputed Indian-controlled Kashmir, but the cost to the impoverished region has been enormous.
Indian authorities have announced that they will lift the travel advisory in Kashmir that has been in place for over two months. They also said they will gradually remove restrictions on movement in the disputed region.
The dispute over India's move to scrap Kashmir's special status and the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor were the main topics of discussion between two leaders. China's president is expected to travel to New Delhi soon.
Analysts say that Beijing's response to India's actions in Kashmir has not been up to Islamabad's expectations. At the same time, China is reportedly unhappy with a lack of progress on its Pakistan economic corridor.
