India & Pakistan Agree to Map Disputed Border

From Defense News:
In an attempt to resolve a longstanding territorial dispute, India and Pakistan have agreed to conduct a joint survey of the marshy area along Sir Creek, which empties into the Arabian Sea, officials here said...
The joint survey of Sir Creek will be carried out by officials from India’s Border Security Force; Survey of India, the Department of Science and Technology’s national survey and mapping organization; and surveyors and border guards from Pakistan. Working in the area through mid-March, they will use Global Positioning System receivers and other advanced equipment to determine a boundary, an Indian Defence Ministry official said.
The two countries have clashed numerous times in the area including the 1965 war.
