          Atleast i can hope that there will be peace. and both countries should focus on their economies. At least WE should focus on our economy which ( thanks to talibans and thier well wishers) Shattered long time ago,and in the mean while dispute of Kashmir must be highlighted in front of UN. the recent reports shows that their are more than 3,500,000 people living beyond poverty line in stan while 50,000,000 in India.
