    The UK has slapped an arms embargo on India, the Chinese and Japanese are calling on India to act responsibly, and the Americans are asking their citizens to leave India. Now this from India's best buddy, Russia.

    Russia invites Pakistan, India for talks: Islamabad welcomes move


    Russia has invited the leaders of India and Pakistan to attend a meeting in early June in Kazakhstan to prevent an escalation of the conflict over Kashmir, Russian President Vladimir Putin told Interfax on Saturday. In its immediate reaction, Islamabad welcomed the Russian initiative and said that Pakistan would appreciate any initiative, which could lead to de-escalation of the tensions between the two countries.

    "I hope they will come, so that we can discuss the matter here and prevent the further escalation of the conflict," Putin said during a visit with US President George W. Bush to the northern city of Saint Petersburg. "Russia regrets that, in the context of the conflict," missile tests were being carried out, Putin said. US President George Bush on the occasion expressed the hope that Indian Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee and President Pervez Musharraf would both attend a meeting in Kazakhstan in early June. "We believe Prime Minister Vajpayee and President Musharraf will both be attending," Bush said.

      Yes absolutely. We have welcomed the Russian offer for talks with India to discuss this escalating conflict over Kashmir. The Indians the other day refused to talk to Pakistan, but lets see if they welcome this Russian move?

            Yes and I'm surprised that rvikz managed to write 5 lines himself without cutting and pasting from some site as he usually does.

            khair predictably India is not to pleased with Russia's offer to host talsk between Pakistan and India.

            India gives guarded response to Putin's Kazakhstan mediation offer

            So much for India wanting peace huh?

              Young rvikz. Now then. I don't normally reply to your posts, largely because I feel sorry for you. I could not hold back today though.

              Vajpayee's letter to Bush pre-empts US missive?
              IANS
              Washington, May 25

              --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
              A tough letter from Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee put the US on the defensive, pre-empting a missive on the India-Pakistan tension that a senior American diplomat was to carry to New Delhi early June, sources here say.
              The sources said Vajpayee's letter to President George Bush pre-empted the letter Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage was to carry to New Delhi.

              Bush administration sources, familiar with Vajpayee's letter that was faxed by the Prime Minister's Office to the White House, with a copy to the US embassy in New Delhi, and received by Bush on May 20 before he left for Europe and Russia, said it was a "tough message" sans the usual pleasantries.

              "They (Bush and Vajpayee) have been talking to each other on the telephone, so this was an official communication," a senior diplomatic source said.

              The letter specifically mentioned India's concern over continuing cross-border terrorism fomented by Pakistan. Bush last spoke with Vajpayee May 14, hours after terrorists killed 32 Indian men, women and children in Jammu.

              The US president had called the incident an "outrage."

              According to the sources, Vajpayee's letter informed Bush that India had not seen an end to cross-border terrorism and that New Delhi was rapidly "running out of patience and options."

              One observer said the message to Bush was clear -- unless the US put the screws on Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf, India planned to exercise its military option.

              Vajpayee, the sources said, complained that "none of the commitments given by Musharraf in his January 12 speech has been met." Far from there being any cessation of cross-border terrorism, "terrorists are re-grouping in camps across the border," the prime minister noted.

              The prime minister made it clear that Musharraf was pulling wool over Washington's eyes in assuring the Bush administration that Pakistan was clamping down on terrorism and "ground realities" proved otherwise.

              There was overwhelming evidence that besides continued infiltration and cross-border terrorism, terrorist camps were mushrooming across the Line of Control in Pakistani territory, he added.

              The sources said the flurry of statements emanating from Washington, clearly acknowledging infiltration by terrorists from Pakistan and the tough messages from Secretary of State Colin Powell to Musharraf, were consequent to Vajpayee's letter.

              US intelligence has warned the administration that India was serious about launching military strikes against Pakistan in the coming weeks.


              My point is then, it seems that India has been the one looking for a middleman and found it in its white Texan cousin. If India can handle Pakistan on its own, why write to Dubbya. Deal with it yourself.

                  Excellent point aloo, one that I am sure the Indians (including "dumb blondes" like rvikz) will answer with great difficulty, if at all.

                  - India asked for 20 people to be extradited from Pakistan more than six monts ago - has not happened.

                  - India asked for an end to Pakistan's "diplomatic and moral support" to the Kashmir cause - that to has not happened.

                  - India has twice in the last six months readied its army and threatened to wage war on Pakistan - that has not happened, despite all those boasts about a "decisive battle".

                  Sum total India has achieved zilch from Pakistan since 9/11, despite saying it could 'handle' Pakistan on its own. Yet we now find out they have begging the Americans for help against Pakistan. Now even the Russians want to help both sides by offering mediation. Poor India can it do anything on its own?

                    Thanx God we have Musharraf as President of Pakistan.Vaju thought by delivering firey speeches he can intimidate Pakistan.But on the contrary,It brought eveybody in Pakistan together to give full support to President Musharraf.
                    As a nation we don't need any dictation from any country in the world.The whole world knows it.
                    India better wake up now before its too late.

                      Why do you care who acts as a middleman as long as the conflict is resolved.

                      Do you not want peace or do you only want peace on your terms?
