The story on Indo-Pak ties aptly summarized all that has transpired between India and Pakistan in the last decade or so. It’s sad that two countries that have so much in common and are immediate neighbours have still not been able to resolve their differences even though so many years have passed. When things finally took a turn for the better, the 2008 Mumbai attacks damaged whatever little progress had been made and relations soured immediately after that. One hopes that the current leaders will finally be able to look past their differences and work towards mutual cooperation, understanding and the betterment of trade relations.
