In conversation with Prof M D Nalapat on India, US and Pak roles
Prof Nalapat talks about the reason for selection of Imran Khan as Pak PM. Also dwells on missed opportunities for India be it flying 2 squadrons to Kurdistan in 2003 (this would have permanently solved India's crude oil problem) or turning down the US request for boots on the ground in Afghanistan. Nalapat urges India to sign the remaining 2 US agreements ASAP. Also discussed is the balancing act India can do with US and China to mutual benefit.
