Islamabad: Pakistan has made it clear that any national either from Pakistan or India, if travels across the LoC on the Muzaffarabad-Srinagar bus, will use special documents agreed between the two countries and not on a visa. Foreign Minister Khurshid Kasuri told newsmen at the farewell reception hosted in the honour of outgoing Foreign Office spokesman Masood Khan here on Friday evening. If weather did not hinder, the bus service could be started according to the schedule on April 7, he said, adding that preparations for the bus service were in full swing and both sides were working out the travel documents issue. Kasuri said Islamabad had not attached any condition to travel on the bus service but one thing was clear that nobody would be permitted to travel on international passport or visa.
