    None of this has any meaning considering that all these countries STILL consider J&K as "Disputed" and make it a point to show that it is depicted in dotted lines. US goes to the extent of even dotting Arunachal Pradesh on its map! The only significant deal came up when Medvedev signed some hi-fi contracts and Sarkozy got busy with nuclear plants. Rest was all superficial visit. Unless and until they stop pandering to a failed state's medieval concepts, it means little. Cameron and others need to mean their condemnation of jihadi terror from our neighbour in action by recognizing our disputes as null and solved.

    China won't but other 5 can and should.

    Our leaders never discussed this displeasure with other world leaders as aggressively as they should or use an trade as leverage so it gets accepted by other countries that these disputes maye legitimate?? silence is not always golden. When USA wants India to be a strategic partner against China why do these things happen??Politicians can make it clear fix this or no partnership. It is 99% Indian politician fault. No outsiders will come to fix the wrong in India when India politicians don't even care about fixing it.
