Indian and Pakistani NSAs may ‘meet quietly’


NEW DELHI: How complicated can we make the simple question: are Indian and Pakistani foreign secretaries meeting on Friday? The answer on Monday seemed couched in the witches’ prophecy of Macbeth: when the hurly-burly’s done and the battle’s lost and won. So how do you define hurly-burly?

A puzzling report on NDTV news channel suggests the national security advisers could meet secretly in a third country before the foreign secretaries are brought face to face. The tone of the report is proper, bereft of the usual accusations.
