Dialogue between India

Dialogue between India Pakistan - beyond begging bowl. "We've to do the talking", Prof Bhat. President Rouhani's silence is a give and take for CHAHBAHAR against CPEC. Taking out Dialogue Begging Bowl.

Once, Prof. Abdul Gani Bhat, a senior most member of Hurriyat Conference, told me that we had to do the talking! Same is to render when it comes to the mainstream bench, only if Mr. Akbar Lone won't talk out-of-tune in the assembly. Dozens of prominent talks occurred between India and Pakistan without any results at all. But we're always mentally coerced that Himalaya is going to melt when these talks would occur between the two countries. Pakistan, as 16 February 2018
