After an endearing wait for peace, India has finally resorted to ‘terror-only-talk’ with Pakistan. The Uri attack did enough to awaken the Government to stop talking and start acting and in the near future, India refuses to scale it down. It has been conveyed to Pakistan that any further attack like Uri won’t be taken in quietly.
Amid the shellings, a PTI report had recently claimed that the National Security Advisors of both the nations have had a talk. Ajit Doval and Pakistan’s NSA Nasir Janjua talked on the phone about easing out the tension. There had been various other reports claiming that for the first time post Uri attacks, a contact had been established from Islamabad to India.
All Indian security establishments and polticial circles are presently weaiting to see Pak’s reaction to the surgical strikes which apparaently caused heavy damage to Pakistan. Pakistan though till now has only been in denial of any such strikes.
On being asked whether there is any scope for peace talks between the two neighbours now, the official could only point at the TV screen flashing the Baramulla attacks and said “Is this their offer of peace talks?”
However, when a top official in the government was asked, he neither denied nor confirmed this. The official told Indian Express that even if any such talks happen between India and Pakistan now, they will be about stopping terrorism rather than Kashmir.
