Sense prevails

India and Pakistan are inching closer to an understanding on withdrawal of troops from Siachen with Islamabad inclined “in-principle” to acknowledge current Indian troop positions on the glacier. New Delhi, on its part, will need to be more flexible on the distance to which its troops will pull back.

India, Pak closing Siachen pullout deal.

Finally, some sensible thinking over this “strategic” piece of glacier that has unfairly claimed so many soldiers(est. 3000) in peace time. Let’s hope more sensible steps are taken.
