India-Pakistan Relations have seen a lot of ups and downs in relationships in recent times. While both countries have agreed to a ceasefire on the Line of Control (LOC). On the other hand, due to the decision of Pakistan (Pakistan) not to import cotton and sugar from India, there has been some tension in their relationship. However, even after all this, some people in Islamabad believe that despite the ups and downs in the relationship in the last few days, India’s relations are stable.
Pakistan’s military and political experts say that the Economic Coordination Committee (ECC) has seen hateful results arising from the meetings of the federal cabinet last week. This has caused a bit of tension in the relationship between India and Pakistan. However, these experts believe that even though a bit of tension has arisen in the relationship between the two countries, it has not derailed the relationship. One reason for this confidence is also that both sides have invested a lot of time and effort in the peace process of backchannel negotiations.
Withdrawal of Article 370 closed backchannel talks between the two countries
If high sources are to be believed, this process of dialogue between India and Pakistan started in 2018. Senior officials of both countries started contacting each other. The intention behind this was to end the long-standing tension. This process continued till August 2019, but during this time India removed Article 370 from Jammu and Kashmir and divided the state into two parts. This move of India created panic in Pakistan and the conversation between the two countries stopped.
Negotiations resumed in 2020
India and Pakistan once again began their backchannel negotiations in the spring of 2020. Sources said that senior officials of both the countries met at many places outside India and Pakistan. Many prominent countries also encouraged this meeting. These countries told India-Pakistan that they should continue the dialogue even under adverse circumstances, so that peace will be maintained. The result of these meetings was that the two countries came together on many issues.
General Bajwa reiterated the talk of peace
The result of this conversation between the two countries is that the forces of India and Pakistan have agreed to a ceasefire on the LOC. Recently, Pakistan Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa said that we feel that now there is a need to move ahead by burying the past. But there is a need to create a better environment for this. At the same time, Imran Khan’s government recently decided to import cotton and sugar from India, but a day later it reversed the decision. However, even after this, it is believed that backchannel interaction can normalize the relationship between the two countries.
