India and Pakistan were one nation before the partition took place in 1947. After the partition, India was divided into two separate countries - the Dominion of Pakistan (which was further divided into the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the People's Republic of Bangladesh) and the Union of India (which later became the Republic of India).

There is an international border that runs between India and Pakistan and demarcates the states of India from the four provinces of Pakistan. The Line of Control (LoC) separates Jammu and Kashmir of India from Azad Kashmir of Pakistan. The Wagha Border dissevers the Indian state of Punjab from the province of Punjab in Pakistan. The Zero Point separates India's Gujarat and Rajasthan from Pakistan's Sindh.

In total, India shares 3,323 km of its land border with Pakistan that includes the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir. The border has varied lands and distinct geographical features. From 1988 to 1993, 461 km of Punjab's border that touches Pakistan was fenced and flood-lit by India. By 1999, the Rajasthan-Pakistan border was flood-lit and fenced by India. The borders on both sides are controlled by their respective security forces - Pakistan Rangers of Pakistan and the Border Security Force (BSF) of India. Although the borders of the two countries are clearly demarcated, there have been instances of attempts of smuggling and infiltration by terrorists.

Both the countries share some natural resources. There are six rivers; namely, Indus, Chenab, Beas, Ravi, Sutlej and Jhelum, that flow in both the countries. Both the countries also share the Great Himalayas; it runs from west to east from the Indus valley in northern Pakistan to the Brahmaputra valley in northern India.
