According to a leading newspaper of Pakistan, With China and the US got trapped in their own issues, India and Pakistan must have a dialogue to de-escalate the deforming tensions along the Line of Control in Jammu and Kashmir. The Dawn has said that ultimately, India and Pakistan problems will have to get addresed on the diplomatica channels by the government of both the countries and Dialogue is the only path to consider by two sides.
It said the casualties on the Pakistani side because of the Indian shelling and firing “suggest a disproportionate escalation in violence by India”. It quoted Major General Sahir Mirza, Director General of Mititary Oprerations of Pakistan as warning his Indian counterpart that Pakistan could consider choking Indian security forces’ supply lines across the Line of Control (LoC).
“The unusual Pakistani warning is likely an attempt to signal to India that it has drifted perilously close to red lines in the range of violence that have become a worrying norm along the LoC this year.”
Dawn also accused Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi of being in a state to blame other external factors for the continuing unrest in Jammu and Kashmir. it quoted that ” A diplomatic and high-level political contract between both the countries would be a sensible approach.
“It is articulate that the overall poor state of the bilateral relationships between both the countries have allowed security problems to increase. “A bold political statement is needed between both the countries could go some way toward ending the recent cycle of violence and help put India and Pakistan back on the path to dialogue”.
