Pakistan and India have agreed to immediately cease military hostilities in disputed Kashmir by restoring a 2003 truce to deescalate tensions between the nuclear-armed South Asian rivals.

Kashmir has sparked two of the three wars India and Pakistan have fought since they both gained independence from Britain in 1947.
