The Road to Peace

Diplomacy the only way forward

In International relations there is no permanent friend or enemy only national interests are supreme and constant but at the same time national interest can not be achieved by mutual destruction or with collective suicide in the presence of conventional and unconventional weapons like nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons.

Keeping in view this perspective the former U.S President Donald Trump and President Kim of North Korea had also realized to avoid escalation in the Korean Peninsula and decided to give a chance to peace through diplomacy. The whole civilized world had also appreciated the move of both leaders.

Now the stage had already been set for the peaceful settlements of all the international disputes including the Palestine and Kashmir Issue. 

In 2017, perhaps the world was almost ready for another “Nuclear Conflict” between United States and North Korea. But on 12th June, 2018 the former U.S President Donald Trump and President Kim met in Singapore and played a vital and effective role in de-escalating the situation in the Korean peninsula and gave the world a new hope for peace, harmony and reconciliation.

At first diplomatic talks started directly between United States and North Korea then in stage two negotiations started between North Korea and South Korea and then on the final round talks were held between China and United States. Now the world leaders have realized that diplomacy is the only way forward to settle all the outstanding international and regional disputes.

The former U.S president Donald Trump had already shown his strong commitment to resolve the Afghan, Syrian and North Korean crisis through diplomatic channels. Although there was a strong intelligence reports that North Korea had not ended its nuclear program but even then the former U.S President Trump had decided to give a chance to peace through diplomacy and closely monitored the developments between United States and North Korea for the sake of international peace and stability.

The South Korean President Moon Jae-in had also played a vital and very much effective role in normalising the situation in the Korean peninsula and realized that the people of both North and South Korea had already suffered a lot since 1954.

The South Korean president had not only believed in the de-escalation of the situation in the region but even talked about the possible unification of both North and South Korea as well. Moon Jae-in also focused on the “Nuclear free Korean Peninsula” and secondly strongly believed in the normalization of relations between north and South Korea. The Kim’s sister also played a vital role in defusing the situation in the whole region.

Due to these diplomatic developments the whole civilized world had already witnessed a great moment when in the winter Olympics of 2018 both North and South Korean players had shown solidarity under one banner.

China had also played an important role in “North Korean Nuclear Crisis” and played a very constructive role for the regional stability, international peace and security. In fact china had once again played an important role as a regional and global actor in engaging North Korea. 

The former U.S President Trump had a firm believe that the Chinese president would definitely use his influence over North Korea to resolve the nuclear crisis which is in fact a great threat to international peace and security. Although the Chinese regime was well informed about the deteriorating economic conditions of his North Korean ally but even then China voted in favour of the sanctions against the North Korea in Security Council.

Now in South Asian regional perspective it’s time for both India and Pakistan to initiate a dialogue and to settle all the outstanding issues including the core issue of Kashmir through bi-lateral, tri-lateral or multi-lateral diplomacy.  

No doubt, Kashmir is another “Nuclear Flash Point” between India and Pakistan and this issue must be resolved through peaceful negotiation between the two nuclear states. Now it’s also a time for the International community to facilitate the dialogue process between the two nations. In the presence of conventional and non conventional capabilities of Pakistan, war will no more be a right option for India as well.  

It’s very much true that the people of Pakistan have suffered a lot due to terrorism, extremism and fundamentalism. No doubt Pakistan had played a vital and effective role as a front line state against “war on terror” and no doubt our security forces had given their precious lives for the international peace, stability and security in every part of the world.

Now it’s also the time for the international community to redefine and differentiate between the individual act of terrorism and the terrorism organized and sponsored by the modern civilized states against the innocent people of the occupied land.

After the world war-2 the civilized world had formed a Nuremburg and Tokyo trial for the extreme human rights violations and atrocities committed by the axis forces ( Axis states) Now again it’s a time for the civilized world to open their eyes and see the swear human rights violations against the innocent Kashmiri people.

Kashmir is also another “Nuclear Flash Point” between India and Pakistan now it’s the right time for both nations to stop blame game because the blame game will not serve the interest of both nations.

 Now India and Pakistan should start a “dialogue” on all the outstanding issues including the core issue of Kashmir and should settle all the disputes by peaceful means and through diplomacy so that the actual war against poverty, nepotism, corruption, black marketing and hoarding should be started and the dream of good governance, and the fruits of democracy must be enjoyed by the people of both nations in a peaceful manner.

The recent cease fire on line of control has given a new hope to the people of both countries. Only India and Pakistan can change the future discourse of Nuclear South Asia.
