The rapprochement between India and Pakistan seems to get stronger by the day, with recent news including an agreement to resume air links between the two countries Jan. 1, Pakistan’s president offering to remove all of his troops from Kashmir if India does the same, and a cease-fire now in place in that troubled region. Previously a bus link had been reestablished and ambassadors posted. Hopes have been dashed in the past, but for now the news is positive, and perhaps Kashmir’s woes may be seeing the beginning of the end.
