The issue of prisoners would have to be addressed urgently. It would be one of the most important confidence builders. Almost 80% of the prisoners are those who have violated the law deliberately; only a miniscule number is of those who cross the border inadvertently. But not all those who breach the law deliberately are spies.There are those whose families live across the border and once they come in, they don't want to go back.The visa regime can be relaxed. Both countries have an overwhelming percentage of young people who don't have memories of 1947. They would love to visit their neighbours on tourist visas.But the governments think that all of this will undermine national security and have fenced themselves up. The tragedy is that it's the poor people of both the countries who end up paying a heavy price for the political stand-off.

That can not be easily decided due to crimes committed.
