I've read a couple of articles over the last few weeks which lead to me believe the situation in Afghanistan is changing towards being more pro-Pakistan.
What do you think?
Positives from visit of Aghan President to Afghanistan - http://www.dawn.com/...ith-afghanistan
Afghanistan foreign policy Pak/China focused - http://ibnlive.in.co...a/514036-2.html
Meanwhile there also seems to be a potential of change for rhetoric in Pakistan
Musharraf warns of Proxy war with India in Afghanistan - http://www.dawn.com/news/1145291
Sartaj Aziz: Pakistan shouldn't target militants who aren't a threat to Pakistan - http://www.dawn.com/news/1145135
Even Karzai seems to be trying to sound inportant saying Afghanistan doesn't need Indian boots on the ground - http://www.dawn.com/...its-soil-karzai
I think every day we don't engage Afghanistan in a positive manner is a day wasted. We should not put our Eggs in the Taliban basket alone, it will never work as a policy. Our ties with Afghanistan should be deeper than on a government by government basis. Regardless of who is in charge in Afghanistan, we should endeavour to facilitate trade, development and basic training in Afghanistan. Give the Afghans means to be Farmers, builders, drivers, nurses, whatever we can help with or can facilitate others to help with. Governments come and go, the people always remain, or ties should be deepest with them.
