    SKARDU, Pakistan — Pakistan's army chief says his country is ready for talks with India over resolving a dispute over a Himalayan glacier.

    Gen. Ashfaq Parvez Kayani's comments could signal a softening of the army's position toward a country with which Pakistan has fought three wars.

    He says the dispute over the Siachen Glacier "should be resolved" and "how it is resolved the two countries have to talk about."

    Kayani was speaking Wednesday in a rare question and answer session with the media after visiting the site of an avalanche near the glacier that has buried more than 125 Pakistani soldiers.

    Talks won't amount to anything, as usual.

    You can fight a country.. you can fight an army.. but you can't fight the nature. When nature decides knock sense into you... you don't have an option other than obey it's command!!

    So the Pakistani Parliament gets to "discuss" USA but not India bilateral relations? Hmmmm, interesting, to say the least. :D

    Well... it was evident from the recent bold statements by both indian & pakistan govts with regards to extending co-op in various trade initiatives, that there is back level talks going on already between India & PA's reps.

    Coming back to issues being discussed in Pakistan parliament, I don't think that will happen anytime soon. Too much at stake for PA to relinquich that role.

    Ummm. somebody blinked!

    When was Pak Foreign Policy towards India decided in its Parliament?

    BTW, how far is GHQ from the Pakistani Parliament? In geographical terms, I mean.

    Presently, about 20 km.

    (A new GHQ is being built further away.)

    So GHQ is moving further away from Parliament. In geographical terms only, of course.
