India and Pakistan should behave like responsible nuclear powers


In the aftermath of the August 5th decision by India to revoke Article 370, there has been a lot of rhetoric from both countries. Both countries need to behave like responsible nuclear powers.

The total state of shock within the Pakistani establishment is visible from the vitriol not just from Prime Minister Khan and Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi but also from former officials on the news and social media.
