Pressurising Pakistan

2 August 2010

This is with reference to British Prime Minister David Cameron’s remarks against Pakistan on his visit to India.

Can you really blame Cameron for saying what he did? Do you think he’d have succeeded in selling almost a billion dollars worth of weapons and equipment to India, if he had referred to the situation in Kashmir or if he had told his hosts not to buy unnecessary aircraft and arms, but to invest the money in those Indian states, which are in the grip of Maoist insurgents?
