Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has made a surprise visit to Pakistan a move that has been called unheard of and the first visit by an Indian PM in over 10 years , his visit follows a stopover in Afghanistan on his way home from Russia.

Sharif hugged Modi after he landed at the airport in the eastern city of Lahore, state television showed. A spokesman at the Pakistani prime minister's office told Reuters the two leaders would discuss a range of bilateral issues, including the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir.


The thawing of relations between two Nuclear armed neighbors can only be a good thing at this time of constant war , the article also suggest a closer union between the two countries in helping Afghanistan and fighting terrorism which it has to be said Pakistan is a breeding ground for.

Earlier Friday, in his speech to the Afghan parliament, Modi urged closer cooperation between India, Pakistan and other neighbours for Afghanistan's progress.

"We know that Afghanistan's success will require the cooperation and support of each of its neighbours. And, all of us in the region - India, Pakistan, Iran and others - must unite ... behind this common purpose," Modi said.

Modi also made a veiled reference to Pakistan on the issue of cross border terrorism in Afghanistan.

"Afghanistan will succeed only when terrorism no longer flows across the border; when nurseries and sanctuaries of terrorism are shut; and, their patrons are no longer in business," Modi said.

Perhaps 2016 will be the year other players in the world step up , put their differences aside and help rid the world of this disease currently effecting their regions.

Would be great if the countries around ME would actually make an end to radical muslims, instead of just "Nah, not our problem."

The western world can't keep babysitting the rest of the world.

We can't just leave them be. Clearly the ME countries don't gief 2 #s about other people in the region. If we don't stop them, they will be at the fronties of Europe soon, and pretty likely in the US aswell.

Thats western spin. Pakistan and India conflict over religion, their border, they been killing each other over them both for decades. Because they are talking doesn't mean they are agreeing, anymore than Putin meeting Obama means they are working things out, either.

Their conflict is between them, not about Afghanistan.

Classic! Yep, they are one mean lookin' babysitter!


I think the get the hell out might not be a good idea though. In this world that is running out of space we are going to have to go in the other direction of diplomacy and friendship. It is very good to see Pakistan and India getting it on like this.

I wish we understood how important diplomacy is. I have realised this. A skilled diplomat can avert wars. Diplomacy is the civilized way of conducting international affairs.

More diplomacy, less war. We call ourselves civilized (raises a Spock eyebrow). Lets act like it.

Well it's better than nothing.

To be fair both sides should be acknowledged for showing restraint when it comes to nukes-they have been at loggerheads for decades and while both sides don't see eye to eye at least they appear to recognize the devastating power that could end us all.
