JSM | 7 years ago | Reply @Bobb Mack: Indian FS may start talking to Baluchistan Liberation Front leaders Remember 1971, the most powerful country twisted India's arm ( sent 7th fleet to assist Pakistan) and your country (I assume you are a Pakistani) broke into two. WE wait and watch to see the results of the latest alleged arm twisting. Moderators- There is nothing malicious in what I have written- please publish it.
Bobb Mack | 7 years ago | Reply @JSM: Talks with the separatists have already taken place at the Pak high Commission India. What remained was the bilateral dialogue at FS level in Pakistan - after one cancellation by the Indians due to reasons best know to them it is now resheduled at the same venue albeit following some arm twisting. Therefore on this occasion repeat talks with the separatist along side the same dialogue episode is not necessary. Of course meetings with the separatists will continue in future as required. You Indians have difficulty thinking on right lines but eventually the reality will start sinking. What consequences Pakistan will face if they met the separatists again? You obviously are not in the right frame of mind.!!
