Peace between India and Pakistan?


India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has called for a sustained war on terrorism and reaffirmed his willingness to continue peace talks with nuclear neighbor Pakistan. Pakistan's President General Pervez Musharraf, who will meet Singh in New York on Friday, has already promised a bold approach to resolving the Kashmir dispute that has bedeviled relations between the two South Asian rivals for half a century.
There are a lot of roadblocks to this happening, but the fact that they are willing to talk, and appear open to negotiation is a great start. Settling the Kashmir issue would be a huge benefit to the war on terror. Oh, and you can bet that it was a lot of U.S. diplomacy that is making this happen.
