War clouds weigh down Indo-Pak trade winds- Foreign Trade-Economy-News-The Economic Times

The war rhetoric fogging South Asia is threatening to derail Indo-Pak bilateral trade, which is heavily skewed in India’s favour. While this may make Indians sit up and take notice, it could turn out to be a double whammy for our neighbour. (via War clouds weigh down Indo-Pak trade winds- Foreign Trade-Economy-News-The Economic Times).

This is the kind of opportunity that India should be looking for. Increasing trade with Pakistan can be the productive way to engage Pakistan – and make it behave. A billion dollars in trade can make Pakistan a different country. After all, they went to the IMF for some US$3 billion.

A trade embargo on Pakistan would be far more effective than troops movements can be.

Will Indian diplomats ever learn?
