Pakistan has decided to suspend bilateral trade and downgrade diplomatic relations with India after a high-level meeting chaired by Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday as a response to India's move to revoke the special status to the Indian-controlled Kashmir, according to the Prime Minister's Office in a statement.

There is a long-running separatist insurgency on the Indian side, which has led to thousands of deaths over three decades. India accuses Pakistan of supporting insurgents but its neighbour denies this, saying it only gives moral and diplomatic support to Kashmiris who want self-determination.
