List of Indian High Commissioners to Pakistan

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following people have served as High Commissioners or Ambassadors from India to Pakistan. Pakistan vacated its membership in the Commonwealth of Nations from January 1972 until August 1989. From 1999 until 2004, and during 2007-2008, Pakistan was suspended from the Commonwealth of Nations. During those periods, India and Pakistan exchanged Ambassadors instead of High Commissioners.
