Kashmir, a northwestern Indian subcontinent region is bounded by China's Uygur Autonomous Region of Xinjiang to the northeast and the Tibet Autonomous Region to the east, by the Indian states of Himachal Pradesh and Punjab to the south, by Pakistan to the west, and by Afghanistan to the northwest. The northern and western portions of Kashmir are administered by Pakistan, the southern and southeastern portions by India. The Indian- and Pakistani-administered portions are divided by a “line of control” agreed to in 1972, although neither country recognizes it as an international boundary. Since 1962, China has controlled the easternmost portion of the region.
