India-Pak Reset
Can we trust them? This is the burden of comments both in India and Pakistan after the meeting between Prime Ministers Narendra Modi and Nawaz Sharif.
 
 It is rather surprising that the BJP, which boasts of pursuing national interests, should abandon its principles so readily writes Sudip Talukdar for South Asia Monitor  
 
The series of incidents from 1949 till now clearly signify that Pakistan lacks a central authority to take and implement decisions  writes Anuradha Rai for South Asia Monitor  
 

Modi and Nawaz Sharif should realise the fact that the emerging world order is grounded in economic regionalism

 

Over the last six months, the Indian security establishment has been signalling a new policy of robust response, the kind the country has not witnessed in the recent past.

 

After meandering for a year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s policy on Pakistan has gotten back onto the track that was set by P V Narasimha Rao as far back as 1991.

 

Recent statements by Indian ministers of sponsoring non-state actors in Pakistan did not help the cause of relations between the two countries

 

A view from Pakistan on the civilian government’s rationale for the joint statement with India at Ufa and the military’s response to it.

 
 India has taken adequate hedging positions to walk out of the current engagement if Pakistan does not take concrete steps to control terrorism emanating from its soil writes Divya Kumar Soti for South Asia Monitor  
 

Passion uninformed by reason is ultimately dishonest. It never serves the national interest. But it always serves particular interests dressed up as the national interest.
