Those in the Know will know why India and Pakistani National Security Advisors met and who made them meet, regardless of the fact that it would yield precisely nothing. Praveen Swami in IE on why Pakistan and India are talking. Ms. Sushma Swaraj, India’s External Affairs Minister visited Pakistan too. An endless charade.
This is the cycle: Escalation by Pakistan – India threatens but does nothing – international pressure – de-escalation – Talks – Re-group and hatch new plans – Escalation. Rinse – Lather – Repeat.
I am glad to note that this MINT Edit endorses my stance.
