Kashmir disputed can spark S. Asia’s nuclear fuse: US think tank

ISLAMABAD, Aug 26 (APP):A United States think-tank has warned the international community that the specter of nuclear war haunts tensions between India and Pakistan, and the disputed territory of Kashmir could provide the spark that lights South Asia’s nuclear fuse.

The think tank, Stratfor, a geopolitical intelligence platform based in Austin, Texas in a report also disputes the classification of the Kashmir issue as India’s ‘internal affair’ or a ‘bilateral’ issue between India and Pakistan. “It isn’t. A potential nuclear conflagration cannot be anything other than a matter of international peace and security,” the report warns.
