Despite near-continuous daytime sorties of helicopters delivering aid to earthquake victims, thousands are still in desperate need and Pakistan suggested letting Kashmiris cross the boundary with Indian-held territory to aid reconstruction efforts. The nuclear rivals also said people on both sides could again call each other. The reciprocal gestures were the latest signs of cooperation to emerge between the two countries as they share a common grief after a powerful earthquake devastated the disputed Himalayan territory more than a week ago. Pakistan's president suggested allowing Kashmiris to cross the boundary with Indian-held territory, the so-called Line of Control, to help in quake reconstruction efforts, a proposal that would encourage cooperation between the rival nations in a region that lies at the heart of their enmity. India, which has sent quake relief supplies to Pakistan, hailed Pakistan's proposal.
