India and Pakistan must resume dialogue and abandon the path of confrontation.

The two neighbouring countries India & Pakistan have to exist as neighbours for all times to come. One neighbour cannot exist and/or flourish without the other.
We believe that there is no issue between the two countries that cannot be resolved through dialogue and negotiations and a will to settle all issues and differences.
The present confrontation and jingoism has to stop, it harms lives of people on both sides. There is grave concern that after 70 years of independence a large proportion of the populations of both countries are still steeped in poverty, hunger, disease and homelessness
The existing situation is undermining friendly relations between the two countries and it will lead them to a situation that will threaten the future of both the peoples.
The dialogue should however not be limited to politicians, the armies or bureaucrats. Civil society organisations of both the countries must be a party to the dialogue as they alone will persuade the states to alter their course.
