Pakistan as US enemy not in India's interest: M J Akbar Experts on Tuesday described the Indo-US strategic dialogue as "healthy" after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna enumerated the goals and aspirations at a joint conference in New Delhi."I think the sale of defence tech was an important announcement by the US. Hillary managed to lubricate that block," senior journalist M.J. Akbar told Headlines Today.Reacting to US' stern message to Pakistan telling it to "act on terror on its own behalf first and foremost" in the wake of 13/7, Akbar, the editorial director of India Today, said, "Hillary said what was expected of her. It would not be in India's interest for Hillary to declare Pakistan as its enemy." Describing the strategic dialogue as good, Akbar added, "I think you can see from the baby's face that it's a healthy partnership."Echoing his views, former Indian ambassador to US Ronen Sen said, "I think both the visa and nuclear co-operation issues can be resolved now - there are reports that US visas are being misused. On the Indo-US nuclear co-operation, despite its support, America has always spoken some kind of restrictions."Strategic affairs analyst Sushant Sarin said the "Indo-US meeting lived up to expectations". "Though there were no big-bang announcements, what I can make out is on nuclear co-operation, India got some assurance from the US," he told Headlines Today."Responding to US' stand on terrorism vis-a-vis Pakistan, Sarin also agreed with Akbar, saying, we will have to "wait and see". "On transactional issues, India and the US seemed to have made further progress," he said. This is a big takeaway, he added.
