Singh defends Sherm-e-Sheikh declaration

New Delhi (Dawn.com): The alternative to dialog is war said the Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to the legislators during his speech. He was defending the declaration signed between the Prime Minister’s of India and Pakistan on the sideline on NAM.

There is no other way unless we go to war.’ ‘As neighbors it is our obligation to keep our channels open. Look at what is happening in the world. The US and Iran have been sworn enemies for 30 years, and yet they feel compelled to enter into a dialogue. Unless we want to go to war with Pakistan, dialogue is the only way out. But we should do so on the basis of trust-but-verify.’
