India will lose more if war erupts with Pakistan: NYT editorial

The two neighboring countries which have fought four wars in the past have again constantly been exchanging heavy gunfire at the Line of Control (LoC) and the Working Boundary for a while now, and which have also caused casualties in both sides of the border.

In addition to routine clashes at the border, the two countries are also hurling accusations against each other of being involved in terror-related activities in each other countries.

Therefore, the United Nations and the United States have asked both Pakistan and India to exercise restraint and solve their differences through dialogue

In a statement issued on Tuesday, the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon called upon Pakistan and India to exercise maximum restraint and take all feasible steps to ensure protection of civilians in the wake of escalation of violence along the LoC that has resulted in a number of casualties.

Meanwhile, the United States also urged both the countries to resolve their differences peacefully, saying they have a shared interest in defeating terrorism.

However amid the escalated tension between Pakistan and India, their national security advisors are scheduled to meet in New Delhi on August 23 to “discuss all issues connected to terrorism”.

“They will have a chance to heed that advice when top Indian and Pakistani national security advisers meet later this month,” the NYT editorial said referencing to the advices by the UN and the US for the two nuclear-armed countries in South Asia.
