India and Pakistan should look at the benefits of friendship with each in terms of trade and tourism as we can save billions and Pakistan can offer trade routes to India for Central Asian nations. We were one nation 70 years ago.
China uses Pakistan to keep us hemmed in South Asia and we seem to oblige.
Our real foreign policy challenge will be China - Pakistan will be noise/irritation.
We are well behind China in almost all parameters. Their reality is likely closer to their aspirations on the world stage. IMHO, our aspirations are way ahead of our reality. But the collision of our aspirations is bound to happen. IMHO, the hard work of making our reality closer to our aspirations is still the fundamental change needed only then will the rest matter.
India should give up its fixation of isolating Pakistan.India will never succeed to isolate Pakistan.It will be better for India to normalize its relations with Pakistan and leave peacefully with its neighbour.
