Pakistan on Monday released 30 Indian prisoners including 27 fishermen as a humanitarian gesture to mark its Independence Day on August 14, reported Associated Press of Pakistan (APP).
"This is in line with Pakistan's consistent policy of not politicising humanitarian issues," Foreign Office Spokesman Muhammad Faisal said in a statement.
The Spokesman expressed hope that India would also reciprocate in a similar manner. India celebrates its Independence Day on August 15.
