Diplomacy wins against national ego, Nawaz Sharif Meets Modi

Pakistan’s Prime Minister Mian Nawaz Sharif’s visit to India has been a controversial topic throughout in news and media. India’s newly elected prime minister was the Chief  Minister of Indian State Gujarat when the massacre of thousands of Muslims took place in his state and he did nothing to stop the killings rather he supported the perpetrators. Now it was a very hard decision for Mian Nawaz Sharif to decide to go or not to go in the swearing in ceremony of the newly elected prime minister. But Mian Nawaz Sharif opted to go keeping in the mind the international diplomacy and for furthering trade and bilateral relations and for starting dialogues on Kashmir and other disputes, and for easing up the tensions in two countries.

On his coming back, Nawaz Sharif said, "I leave this historic city with a strong sense that the people of our two countries will work together for peace and cooperation. Two foreign secretaries will be meeting soon."

According to Indian Foreign Secretary Sujatha Singh Modi raised the issue of cross-border terrorism and sought a speedy trial in the 26/11 case with Pakistani Prime Minister. But the meeting of foreign secretaries will be resumed soon.

Religious parties and right hand powers are labelling this meeting and participation in swearing-in ceremony as fruitless as India’s stance about Pakistan will never change and India will continue blaming Pakistan for cross border terrorism and will never take a serious initiative towards solution of problems including Kashmir, Siachin and other issues. Only Time will come about the outcome of this episode.
