Bilateral talks between India and Pakistan that had been suspended post the 26/11 terrorist attack in Mumbai are now likely to be resumed. Even though this development has been welcomed by leaders of both the countries, experts believe that the progress is likely to be slow mainly because Pakistan may not be ready to address India’s concern about proliferation of cross border terrorism from its soil. The Kashmir imbroglio is also likely to dampen the momentum. Nevertheless, a dialogue is always welcome since it paves the way for ultimate reconciliation. It would be in India’s interest to stand steadfast on its righteous and justified position with respect to the status of Kashmir as an integral part of India and the need to shut down terrorists camps operating in Pakistan.
