Indo-Pak peace process should be “irreversible”: Pak HC

As his stint comes to an end, Pakistan’s High Commissioner to India Shahid Malik said there is a “window of opportunity” that should be seized by the two countries to make the Indo-Pak peace process “irreversible”.
Asserting that all “important stakeholders” in his country were “onboard” for the peace initiative, Malik, the longest-serving Pakistan High Commissioner, said this is the “best time to take advantage of the situation because unfortunately the window of opportunity in India and Pakistan relations is not very long…….”.
The normalistation of relations between India and Pakistan is not only of “critical importance” to the two countries but also for the peace and stability in the region, said Malik who has been here for over five years.
He also noted that the two countries are aware of the strengths of each other and could “complement and supplement” each other to create a win-win situation.
Observing that there is a lot of potential in the economic sector, the outgoing Pakistan High Commissioner said the two countries need to cover a lot of ground on this front.
He said the two countries were having discussions on the eight segments ranging from bilateral trade to Sir Creek to Siachen and four segments have been deliberated upon as part of the second round of talks between them.
He also talked about the “cricket diplomacy” saying it was very important in this part of the world. The two cricketing boards are discussing the possibility of resuming Indo-Pak bilateral cricket ties, he said, adding decks have already been cleared for the inclusion of a team from Pakistan in the Champions League Twenty20 for the first time since the event’s inception.

    INDIA and US are actively engaged with people of Balochistan and Sindh in their fight for freedom.
    Soon Pakistan will give birth to two new countries namely Balochistan and Sindhudesh.
    Remember what Indian troops did in bangladesh.
    India is highly active in Afghanistan.
    When India will attack you, you will not get space to run away. India will attack you from both sides.

    Despite all the negative actions of Pakistan against India during last 10 years, India has opened the WINDOW. Window of opportunity has to be seized by Pakistan. But, how can a 'ghairatmand' Pakistan seize such an opportunity, its below its dignity.
    Pakistan is not in the habit to seize good opportunities rather it goes on planning creating bad events/opprtunities.
