Not withstanding internet hawks on both sides here
. My statement is to Indians. If USA could have good relationships with Russia, then India can too ( some day).
1. Reagan said " Trust but verify" and that
should be India's policy all the way.(goes both ways)
2. Pakistan must drop the Kashmir issue to where it is willing
to compromise and India must give a little in return for an inland into Asia through that region ( both sides of the border)
3. Pakistan must stop all terrorism funding and supporting , be it Kashmir or Afghanistan
. Pakistan must understand that just like them, any country has a fundamental right to chose its partners . And those partners whether Pakistan likes them or not should not be threatened by Pakistani terrorists. India does not threaten Pakistanis in Sri Lanka, china , Bangladesh, Burma or anywhere in the world if they formulate strategic partnerships. Why can't Pakistan extend the same civilized foreign policy in Afghanistan ?
