India has lifted all the restrictions that were imposed on air traffic back in February over the surge in hostilities with Pakistan. The move is apparently a signal to Islamabad to further de-escalate the tensions. The decision to lift all the restrictions was announced by the Indian Air Force on Friday. Air traffic above India has been limited since February 27. India is ready to open 11 entry points on the border with Pakistan, but that will only happen if Islamabad lifts its own air traffic restrictions as well, local media reported, citing sources with the IAF. The move comes shortly after Pakistan extended its airspace restrictions until June 15. "This basically is a signal from India that we are willing to lift restrictions and that Pakistan should reciprocate," an unnamed official told The Times of India.
