New Delhi says that India is waiting to hear from Pakistan on a proposal for a collaborative action to battle the issue of desert locusts, according to reports. Meanwhile, Iran has already acknowledged and responded to the Indian action plan, which includes an offer to provide pesticides to restrain locust populations in Sistan-Balochistan and South Khorasan regions.

The action plan was recommended after reports emerged that swarms of the destructive pests were heading towards Indian after breeding and maturing in Iranian provinces and Pakistan’s Balochistan province.
