The leading British think tank has revealed an astonishing analysis wherein it has been said that Pakistan Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa has made attempts to reach out to India with an aim to restart talks, but it is New Delhi that has been refusing to meet him halfway.
The article further said the Pakistan Army leadership has come around to the position that the path to peace depends on peace with India.
This analysis has been carried out by the Royal United Service Institute (RUSI) and was written by RUSI’s visiting fellow on Pakistan Kamal Alam.
“Senior Pakistani officers, led by Army Chief of Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, realise that the way to peace and prosperity is through military cooperation with India… Despite continued tensions and fire-fights in Kashmir at their fiercest for a decade, Pakistan’s generals want to talk and feel the ball is in India’s court,” read the article.
The article has made many things as a basis to support the analysis, He pointed out that the defence attache at the Indian embassy in Islamabad had been invited to the Pakistan Day military parade in March, for the first ever time. Bajwa had said two weeks later that the Pakistan military wanted peace and dialogue with India.
The author has said that India has so far rejected Pakistan’s offer of a transit trade dialogue on Afghan-Indian commerce. But with a sustained approach by Pakistani officers to India, it could only be a matter of time before Delhi agrees to at least talk to Islamabad.
