    ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:



    Under a protocol signed in November 1974, trade had been handled only on a government-to-government basis, or by government corporations. The May agreement resulted from talks in Islamabad, at which the two countries also agreed to re-establish diplomatic relations which had been broken off since the December 1971 Indo-Pakistan war.
