Nawaz Sharif's India trip: Why Modi won't be a pushover

There is also a risk that Sharif may use this event to further his own political agenda and bring back focus on the Kashmir issue. Whenever Pakistani leaders visit India they make it a point to meet with Hurriyat leaders. The UPA government allowed visiting Pakistani leaders to have closed-door confabulations with the Hurriyat separatists. #India #Pakistan #Narendra Modi #ConnectTheDots #Kashmir #Nawaz Sharif #SAARC #Foreign Ministry #Narendra Modi swearing-in #international event
For east Ukraine, Kremlin adapts Crimea playbook

For east Ukraine, Kremlin adapts Crimea playbook

SLAVIANSK Ukraine (Reuters) - There are important differences between Russia's intervention in Crimea and the events unfolding this week in eastern Ukraine which suggest Moscow has adapted its Crimea playbook and may be pursuing a different outcome. Unlike the Black Sea peninsula, where thousands of Russian troops were already based at ex-Soviet naval facilities leased from Ukraine, there is little clear evidence of Moscow deploying significant forces on the ground in the east of the country. In eastern towns where armed, pro-Russian rebels have seized public buildings and raised the Russian flag, some gunmen identify themselves to journalists as "Russians" - but that says little about citizenship in Russian-speaking parts of Ukraine. #facebook #United States #India #Japan #Russia #Ukraine #opinion #events
