Re­sump­tion of Indo-Pak di­a­logue

Southasia - - EDITOR’S MAIL - Muham­mad Luq­man Baig Chit­tagong, Bangladesh

It is re­fresh­ing to see that both In­dia and Pak­istan have shown their will­ing­ness to re­sume the di­a­logue process, which had hit a dead­lock in the past. This is not the first time when both na­tions will be hav­ing talks with each other on dis­puted mat­ters, but such di­a­logue ses­sions were halted on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions ow­ing to the vul­ner­a­ble sit­u­a­tion at the line of con­trol, in­clud­ing many other po­lit­i­cal and diplo­matic rea­sons. Again, this time when both Is­lam­abad and New Delhi are keen to recom­mence di­a­logue at the higher level, they both need to make sure that the re­sump­tion of these talks would not be sub­ject to any event­ful oc­cur­rence that could hap­pen at any stage along the Indo-Pak bor­der, or some­where else. Un­for­tu­nately, such di­a­logue has been aban­doned mostly by In­dia on a num­ber of oc­ca­sions, but this time the In­dian lead­er­ship must show some much­needed de­ter­mi­na­tion in keep­ing the ne­go­ti­a­tions go­ing with­out un­nec­es­sary de­lays.
