New Delhi: The arch rivals in the South Asian region, India and Pakistan, are said to be setting aside their differences to make the matters more normal in the region. The NDTV report, referring to the government officials, points to the prevailing normalcy in the region.
The ceasefire between the two countries that has lasted for over a year now is noted as a positive indicator towards normalcy that they wish to bring in. There is also indication into smoothening the dealings between two countries by bridging the distance of differences in many levels.
India and Pakistan are also of the view that seeking advice from West is not always workable considering particular condition of the region and for a sustainable peace resolution.
Both the countries are expected to have acknowledged the importance of sorting out the differences on their own ways.
The Pakistan Military has expressed through the National Security Policy its willingness to improve the relationship with India to bring peace and the Army Chief's announcement that the country has no hesitation to reduce military deployment in Siachen region.
The Ministry of Home Affairs sees these developments as positive steps from Pakistan.
As a gesture of goodwill, India is considering Pakistan's requests to provide information beyond the Indus Water Treaty provisions on flood flows. India is giving Pakistan information related to extraordinary discharges of water from reservoirs and flood flows every year as mandated in Indus Water Treaty.
Last year's opening of Kartarpur is another sign that both nations are inching towards lessening hostility towards each other.
