Naturally, Pakistan plays hard to get.

Three full days after Yashwant Sinha announced a held out an olive branch, Pakistan’ reactions have been:

a) To voice disappointment as New Delhi is still not offering a dialogue
b) To doubt the ‘sincerety’ of India’s intentions
c) Musharraf continuing on his own trip – promising to maintain the ‘balance of power’
d) Kasuri says, “the main hurdle in effective peace talks between India and Pakistan is the biased attitude of an extremist Hindu group.

I still believe that India should not have made any concession to Pakistan. It will not stop fuelling violence in Kashmir unless its able to settle the entire issue fully on its own terms.
