Pakistan and India in General Assembly
04 October, 2003
Addressing General Assembly on 25 September, President Musharraf proposed a ceasefire along the Line of Control dividing Indian- and Pakistan-controlled Kashmir and bilateral talks to resolve disputes.
Indian PM Atal Behari Vajpayee, in return, poked Pakistan as ‘terrorist blackmailer’ and adhered ‘No talks’ slogan in front of world body.
Friday, 3rd Oct, US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, responded the comment of Vajpayee in a press conference by cohering Pak-India bilateral talks and avoided setting Pakistan as a ‘terrorist blackmailer’.
What do you think about the open-forum offer of Pakistani President to India?
How do you think Mr. Powell’s statement would benefit Pak-India bilateral talks on disputes?
Could ‘No Talk to Pakistan’ strategy help in resolving Kashmir dispute in any way?
Is it righteous to term India ‘Terrorist Blackmailer’ with about one million armed personnel in Kashmir?
