President Donald Trump, who was singing a different tune about Pakistan two years ago, now realizes his plans for Iran and Afghanistan require stability on the Washington-Islamabad axis, writes The Wire Editor Siddharth Varadarajan. 'This is precisely the context of Imran Khan's visit to the White House, and Trump's remarks on mediation with India are clearly a product of this process,' he argues.

Comment by Ramani K V:

72 years after their simultaneous independence from British rule, accompanied by a brutally violent partition, India and Pakistan remain locked in conflict over Kashmir. Pakistan would not rest until the Indian-ruled part of Kashmir is 'liberated', either by joining Pakistan or attaining independence. India would not yield and demands the return of the Pakistan-ruled part of Kashmir, a portion of which has been ceded to China. The two countries routinely accuse one another of instigating violence and terrorism in their respective halves of the disputed territory. While they have agreed the issue will be resolved through bilateral negotiations, an amicable end remains as elusive as it was more than seven decades ago.

With both countries now nuclear powers, Kashmir is a powder keg awaiting a spark. It has to be defused with extraordinary caution and tact. Not exactly traits one would associate with Trump. Yet, Modi has proven capable of being economical with the truth on a number of matters. He is also vacillating between the US and China in their ongoing great power tussle, one foot more firmly entrenched inside the US camp for now. Whether Modi misspoke about inviting a mediation of Kashmir or whether Trump misheard him is tough to tell.
