Sixteenth-century England was full of desire for new discoveries, for progress, and for opportunities to further develop it.

Continuation of work Historical and political factors influencing relations between India and Pakistan. Conclusion.
The roots of the current form of Indo-Pakistani relations cannot be traced only to the period of existence of India and Pakistan as such, but it is necessary to focus on the period that preceded their very origin.
