Nonaligned, Third World, and Other Ground Armies: A Combat Assessment

By Colonel Reuven Gal; Richard A. Gabriel | Go to book overview

military and paramilitary personnel must remain alert to these problems, as well as to Communist agitation in central and southern India.


Conclusions

With the Kashmir obstacle removed and with common strategic concern for regional stability, the way has been cleared for military cooperation between India and Pakistan. By the end of the decade, the two nations may conclude a mutual defense pact for protection of the subcontinent.

The external threat to the two nations focuses primarily on Pakistan's border with Afghanistan; as a result, all parties concerned realize the urgency of minimizing other problems. In any case, no one envisages internal problems of much significance in either Pakistan or India in the foreseeable future. Resolution of the Kashmir problem may be close, in which case an eventual Indo-Pakistani mutual defense pact may reduce the chances of Soviet aggression on the subcontinent's northwest flank. The two nations and their armies will soon have to acknowledge the inevitability of history and geography. They need each other, and this recognition will ensure security and relative peace in the subcontinent.
