US paper lauds Zardari, Manmohan for ‘sensible’ effort to improve ties PDF Print E-mail
NEW YORK, April 12 (APP): A leading US newspaper Thursday praised President Asif Ali Zardari and Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh for “their sensible, workman like effort over the past year to improve relations between the two nuclear rivals”.  In an editorial on President Zardari’s flying trip to India, The New  York Times expressed the hope that the Indian leader would respond to his invitation to visit Pakistan.  “Both leaders are politically constrained and may not be able to deliver  bold peace moves. But if they keep pursuing incremental steps, they may yet build a peace,” said the editorial, ‘It’s More Than Lunch.”

At the same time, the Times said there could be no real reconciliation with India until Pakistan prosecutes those responsible for the 2008 Mumbai attack,  which killed more than 160 people.
The newspaper noted that Cabinet ministers and civil servants from both sides now regularly exchange visits. “To build real trust, military and intelligence officials must join in,” the newspaper said.
“They have made the most progress on increasing economic cooperation. India and Pakistan do more trade with Britain than with each other, but they are modernizing the handling of goods at borders, easing visa restrictions and talking about oil pipelines and linking electric grids.
“They have much more to talk seriously about, including a joint stake in a stable Afghanistan and the disputed region of Kashmir.”
