India and Pakistan have remained at loggerheads since August 2019. In 2019, India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi withdrew Indian-ruled Kashmir’s autonomy in order to tighten his grip over the territory, provoking outrage in Pakistan and the downgrading of diplomatic ties and suspension of bilateral trade.

The political conflict rapidly scaled down as both sides reached an agreement in February to abide by the 2003 cease-fire agreement across the Line of Control.
