No easy, quick solutions to Indo-Pak issues: Ex-diplomat

Mumbai: There are no easy and quick solutions to issues between India and Pakistan, a former diplomat has said. TCA Raghavan, the former Indian High Commissioner to Pakistan, said the issues between the two countries are characterised by lack of trust and they can only be addressed through diplomatic and political channels. “I do not think there is an easy descriptive solution anyone can offer on India-Pakistan issues,” Raghavan said.“The issues are of mistrust. You can only address issues of mistrust through diplomatic and political processes. There are no easy, quick solutions,” he said.India-Pakistan ties have nose-dived over a host of sticky issues, including cross-border terrorism. The last year’s sentencing to death of Indian national Kulbhushan Jadhav by a Pakistani court further deteriorated the bilateral ties.
