New Delhi: Pakistan has responded positively to India’s proposal to revive a mechanism of a joint judicial panel which looks into humanitarian issues of fishermen and prisoners in each other’s custody, the External Affairs Ministry said today.

It said External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj in October had suggested to the Pakistan High Commissioner to revive the mechanism.

“Pakistan responded positively to the same on March 7,” it said adding India has also sought dates from Pakistan for organising the visit of the committee.

The ministry said names of members of the reconstituted committee from the Indian side were today communicated to Pakistan.

The committee was first formed in 2007.
