Pakistan is learned could be omitted from round of talks this year between India and China, which has lately maintained neutrality in the recent geopolitical crisis in Kashmir.

The fourth annual Strategic Economic Dialogue (SFD) is scheduled to begin Thursday in Indian capital New Delhi.

Kashmir is disputed territory for India and Pakistan for decades and the two nations have conflicted several times over it.


According to senior Asia-Pacific director at advisory from FTI Consulting, Nicholas Consonery, said Beijing may lean on New Delhi to moderate tensions even though historically the country has maintained a deeper alliance with Pakistan.

China calls both the neighbours as close friend in South Asia and said the two nuclear-armed rivals to exercise restraint as well as to avoid further tensions.

Earlier this week Indian official said the country has never nodded no to a dialogue with Pakistan, but it also added that talks should be about stopping cross-border terrorism and not only limited to Jammu and Kashmir.

On Sunday National Security Advisors of both the countries met for a discussion and agreed to try defusing tension in the region.

Pakistan Prime Minister, Sartaj Aziz, confirmed representatives of the two neighboring nations talked saying, “Both officials stressed on the need to establish contact to reduce tensions along the Line of Control.”
