Should India trust Zardari?
November 24, 2008
"There is little of Indian in every Pakistani and a little of Pakistani in every Indian," said Pakistan President Asif Zardari recently as he recalled his late wife Benazir Bhutto's [Images] lines describing Indo-Pak relations.
Zardari stressed on the need to make borders accessible and favoured issuance of 'e-cards', which could be swiped at the border, to enter each other's territory.
He also said that Pakistan did not feel threatened by India and New Delhi [Images] should also not feel threatened by Islamabad [Images]. The Pakistan President's remarks assume significance following reports in the past highlighting the perception among Pakistan's military establishment about India.
What do you think about Zardari's remarks? Do you think Iindia should trust Zardari? Or will his peace offer go the same way as his wife Benazir Bhutto's, who soon after assuming power uttered all the right noises about friendship with India but who turned out to be something else? Tell us...
