Corrections & Clarifications

Corrections and Clarifications - February 3, 2016

>>The first sentence of the penultimate paragraph and the paragraph prior to that in the report, “U.S. considers re-merger of India, Pakistan desks” (Feb. 1, 2016), should be recast to read: “Indian officials also point out that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government are being consulted more often by the U.S. government on matters relating to Afghanistan, and 2015 saw the first visits by two U.S. Generals in combat to India, as well as visits by SRAP Richard Olson (who was then U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan) and Cameron Munter (former U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan). In December 2015, the visit of the Deputy Assistant Secretary Blinken to Delhi, just before his visit to Islamabad was another key indicator of the shift in New Delhi’s position on the ‘re-hyphenation’ of U.S. visits to India and Pakistan.

>>A sentence in “Push for IMF reform” (Editorial, Feb. 1, 2016) read: “It is also a shame that BRICS nations had to launch their own bank, the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank [AIIB], before the high priests of the Fund felt the need to modernise their quota structure.” The Editorial writer’s clarification: “It is true that the BRICS launched the New Development Bank (NDB), and that would have been a better example to use in this particular sentence than the AIIB. However, it is a fact that the BRICS along with non-BRICS nations are founding members or prospective founding members of the AIIB.
