Islamabad, Aug 26, IRNA -- Civil aviation officials from Pakistan and 
India are set to meet here on Wednesday to discuss resumption of air 
links between the two countries, reports said. 
Satendra Singh, Director General Indian Civil Aviation, arrived on
Tuesday along with a five member aviation delegation to discuss the 
issue with their Pakistani counterparts. 
Major General Mohammad Ashraf Chaudhry, Additional Secretary, 
Ministry of Defense will lead the Pakistan side during the two-day 
talks, said local media. 
India and Pakistan closed their airspace twice, first in 1971 
prior to the Indo-Pak war. The second time air, road, and rail links 
were severed last year. 
Following restoration of full diplomatic relations, the bus 
service has been restored, while air and rail links are yet to be 
resumed.
