Pakistan on Sunday officially confirmed that the Lahore-New Delhi bus service would formally be resumed from July 11 with buses simultaneously starting from both the countries.
"All the modalities and arrangements for this have been completed," Pakistan's foreign office spokesman, Masood Khan, told PTI in Islamabad on Sunday.
Though July 11 was tentatively suggested by India to resume the service, Pakistan has confirmed its acceptance of the date on Saturday through its high commission in New Delhi.
The Delhi Transport Corporation announced the relaunching of the Delhi-Lahore bus service from July 11 on Saturday.
Khan said India has invited a delegation of civil aviation officials to resume airlinks and to reopen each other skies for over flights. The Indian invitation has been forwarded to the relevant authorities, he said.
