From the time nation-building began in earnest in the subconti­nent, the avowed pos­ition of South Asian leaders have been to keep safe distance from India-Pak­istan slugfests that frequently add tension in the reg­ion. Irrespective of the nature of confrontation, these nations have tried to duck away, out of range from all the sabre-rattling. This pattern was especially visible during the four wars India and Pakistan fought against each other since 1947.

On occasions though, some countries have broken that neutrality to take a pro-Pakistan position. In 1971, Sri Lanka had offered transit facilities to Pakista­nis when war was declared against India. The offer was withdrawn only after India threatened to use force to stop the ongoing Pakistan-Lanka cooperation.
