Facts about Pakistan

Administrative divisions: 4 provinces , 1 territory* , and 1 capital territory**; Balochistan , Federally Administered Tribal Areas* , Islamabad Capital Territory** , North-West Frontier Province , Punjab , Sindh note: the Pakistani-administered portion of the disputed Jammu and Kashmir region consists of two administrative entities: Azad Kashmir and Northern Areas
Area: total: 803 ,940 sq km land: 778 ,720 sq km water: 25 ,220 sq km
Background: The Indus Valley civilization , one of the oldest in the world and dating back at least 5 ,000 years , spread over much of what is presently Pakistan. During the second millennium B.C. , remnants of this culture fused with the migrating Indo-Aryan peoples. The area underwent successive invasions in subsequent centuries from the Persians , Greeks , Scythians , Arabs (who brought Islam) , Afghans , and Turks. The Mughal Empire flourished in the 16th and 17th centuries; the British came to dominate the region in the 18th century. The separation in 1947 of British India into the Muslim state of Pakistan (with West and East sections) and largely Hindu India was never satisfactorily resolved , and India and Pakistan fought two wars - in 1947-48 and 1965 - over the disputed Kashmir territory. A third war between these countries in 1971 - in which India capitalized on Islamabad's marginalization of Bengalis in Pakistani politics - resulted in East Pakistan becoming the separate nation of Bangladesh. In response to Indian nuclear weapons testing , Pakistan conducted its own tests in 1998. The dispute over the state of Kashmir is ongoing , but discussions and confidence-building measures have led to decreased tensions since 2002. Mounting public dissatisfaction with President MUSHARRAF , coupled with the assassination of the prominent and popular political leader , Benazir BHUTTO , in late 2007 , and MUSHARRAF?s resignation in August 2008 , led to the September presidential election of Asif ZARDARI , BHUTTO?s widower. Pakistani government and military leaders are struggling to control Islamist militants , many of whom are located in the tribal areas adjacent to the border with Afghanistan. The Pakistani government is also faced with a deteriorating economy as foreign exchange reserves decline , the currency depreciates , and the current account deficit widens.
