    Yet another example of India using all excuses and pretences in a bid to link everything it does to US action, thereby trying to get reflected glory/acceptance/brownie points etc. Sept.11 has given India an opportunity to link amy issue with a view to undermining Pakistan. The media, govt. etc are all hard at it.
    Yet another case of spin going mad in India, except it is the Indians getting dizzy, nobody else. In the drugs trade, they say you shouldn't get high on your own supply. India obviously hasn't heard of this phrase.

    US changes stance on India's list of 20 ?

    I don't think there is anything new?. I believed USA always preferred dialogue between India and Pakistan on this issue? Well, not according to the Indians...

    Friday, March 29, 2002 (Washington DC):
    In a reversal of its earlier position, US State Department has said New Delhi and Islamabad should solve all their issues through dialogue including the list of 20 terrorists sought by India from Pakistan.

    Last week Director of South Asia at the National Security Council Harry Thomas, dealing specifically with the list of 20 terrorists, said that Pakistan should either hand over the wanted men to India or try them in Pakistan.

    The altered view

    State Department deputy spokesperson Philip Reeker however at a press conference at the Foreign Press Centre yesterday, drastically changed that position by saying that this and other issues are matters for a dialogue between India and Pakistan.

    "We have encouraged both sides to work together on this. I think this was a subject when the Secretary (of State Colin Powell) travelled in the region. We think both sides could resolve all the issues that they have through dialogue and that includes this one. We made that view very clear again to both sides," he said.

    Reeker was replying to a correspondent who equated New Delhi's demand with the US extradition request for Shiekh Omar Saeed, prime accused in kidnap and murder of journalist Daniel Pearl.

    "What the difference is that they are two entirely different situations. So, that is the simple answer to that," Reeker said.

    "Those who have been charged, indicted in Pakistan, as well as those who have been indicted in the United States for the Pearl's brutal murder, need to be brought to justice. Pakistan obviously has legal requirements as well. So we will continue to see and work that as a legal process," he reiterated.

    The US State Department deputy spokesperson asserted that the Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf had spoken out quite strongly against terrorism and that India and Pakistan now needed to resolve all contentious issue through dialogue.
