    India’s interest compromised in Siachen

    At a recent meeting in Lahore, Pakistan, a group of retired senior officials, military officers and diplomats have reached a consensus on a number of Confidence-Building Measures (CBMs). More specifically, they have agreed on a proposal regarding the demilitarisation of the Siachen area, which has been a potential flashpoint between the two countries for many years. The participants in the process adopted by consensus a general report on their work and the specific proposal on the Siachen issue.

    Agree with Yusuf's remark. It has to be BS! :D

    I think articles like these are posted by "concerned parties" just to highlight to the decision making political setup as to the number of body bags they will be held responsible to, if the army is withdrawn from Siachen.

    The Army itself doesn't agree to withdrawing. Army cannot fight the war if we ask them to stand naked.
    Because they know that for Siachen and in the bigger picture Kashmir itself, bucks stops at them.
    Pulling down from there, will only come back to bite them. Foolish.

    What is the advantage of having several thousand troops on Siachen as opposed to a few troops coupled with an air blockade?

    There are no "several thousand troops" in Siachen.

    Air blockade?

    Are you familiar with the topography of the area?

    These discussions are undertaken as part of a project on conventional confidence-building, which is jointly organized by the University of Ottawa and the South Asia Centre at the Atlantic Council. The project is supported by the Near East and South Asia Centre for Strategic Studies at the National Defence University and the United States Institute of Peace, with additional support from Stanford University. The participants in this process have decided to continue their work on these matters, and have accordingly asked the organizers to prepare a new round of meetings.

    Indian Army is the only one present on Siachen.

    Any withdrawal will be by Indian Army only.

    Napaks are getting a Free Lunch. They do not have to do anything, neither have to loose anything.

    Only Congress will do everything, India will Loose everything!

    Title of the thread is also misleading.

    I wouldn't be surprised at all. GoI has the mandate of people of India to do it, GoI has made decisions post 65,71 wars and other strategic decisions/deals with Pakistan regardless of what we may be thinking or debating about them afterwards.

    I wish there should be provision of referendum when making decisions on such issues.

    This Government is hell bent on destroying India by any and every means possible. Ever since it took office, it has been sending wrong signals to Pakistan and the whole world.
    >> It all started with the repealment of POTA, which is like stripping down before rapists.
    >> Zero military retaliation after 26/11
    >> Repeated protection of Afzal Guru from the noose.
    >> Showing more concern for terrorists and terror suspects than victims of terror.
    >> The shameful decapitulation at Sharm el Sheik.
    >> Exchanging innumerable dossiers with Pakistan instead of gunfire who are then doing everything to discredit the material inside.
    >> Appointing Kashmir 'interlocutors' whose final suggestion is something as unacceptable and anti national as giving 'independence' to Kashmir.
    >> Agreeing on CBM and NCBMs while the sabre rattling continues from other side.
    >> Suggesting anti national and anti military ideas like coming down from Siachen because the Pakis have died in an avalanche.

    UPA has done everything in its power to weaken India and her stance against Pakistan. This is an anti national, anti social, minority government which deserves to be ousted by a military coup or better still, an early election.
