The optimistic editorial “Not by single summits alone” (Oct. 2) has suggested ways to break through the vicious cycle that hampers the India-Pakistan peace process. New Delhi must keep the engagement uninterrupted. Only that can ensure that Islamabad delivers on its assurances, especially its commitment to a ceasefire on the Line of Control. The best hope for better relations lies in strengthening Pakistan’s democracy.

Meaningful progress in the India-Pakistan relations has not taken place even after several summit level talks in the past. We can take consolation from the fact that the Prime Ministers of the two countries rose above pressures and compulsions to meet in New York. There is no alternative to talks and we cannot afford to get carried away by rhetoric.
