Suhasini Haidar: Hello and welcome to this special edition of Worldview with me Suhasini Haidar, coming to you from the Maldives where the entire South Asian leadership has gathered for the SAARC summit. Ahead on the show we will be taking closer look at some of the important meetings specially the one between India and Pakistan , also the role of Afghanistan and later in the show we will speak to Sri Lanka's President Mahindra Rajepakshey about China's growing presence in the SAARC region. With me is Raj Chengappa, the editor-in-chief of the Tribune. Raj thanks so much for joining us, its hot out here in the Maldives but certainly things warmed up this week between India and Pakistan. In fact that heat contributed to the warmth perhaps between the Indian and Pakistani Prime Ministers when they met after that meeting lasted about an hour, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh announcing that India has decided to resume the official bilateral dialogue process with Pakistan, that decision coming three years to the month of the 26/11 Mumbai attacks. What does this resolve now mean for India's former resolve on terror emanating from Pakistan?
