Pakistan and India let bygones be bygones.
Diplomats from both Pakistan and India have met each other in what appears to be the beginning of a compromise over the Siachen glacier. The two belligerent states nearly went to war in 1984 over this disputed territory. The Siachen glacier is one of the world’s loftiest regions where temperatures reach minus 70 degrees celsius. It provides important land links with mainland China.
India has several times accused Pakistan of funding terrorism in Kashmir. All relations were broken off after the 2008 Mumbai attacks behind which lay the scheming of the Lashkar-e-Taiba. The two nations have a history of conflicts and skirmishes after independence. But now they are finally willing to bury the hatchet.
