a “Nixon to China” moment There were similarities also with Anwar Sadat’s trip to Jerusalem that marked the beginning of the Arab-Israeli peace process Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif boldly invited his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi to drop in and Modi stopped over in Lahore on Christmas Day on the way back to Delhi from Kabul As gestures go it was as clear a statement as any by both leaders that they are committed to overcoming the burden of the past and building a better future for India-Pakistan relations But while dramatic gestures are an integral part of international relations and diplomacy good ties between nations with an adversarial past are not made of dramatic gestures alone Richard Nixon’s China trip was preceded by and followed up with several rounds of meticulous negotiations The US realised it could not ignore a nation of one billion people forever American corporations salivated at the prospect of access to a new market comprising almost a fifth of the world’s population On the Chinese side Mao and Zhou Enlai persuaded their colleagues that China needed peace with the US to deal with threats from the Soviet Union Later Deng Xiaoping’s “Four Modernisations” concept transformed the Chinese Communist Party Deng argued successfully that China needed to modernise catch up with the world before thinking of itself as a global power The US-China entente paved the way for China’s peaceful rise and some would argue the demise of the Soviet Union But it also left the Communist Party entrenched in power albeit at the head of a capitalist economy Both China and the US benefited though China may have profited more Nixon went to China in 1972 paving the way for 43 years of cooperation between two countries that had been adversaries until then Although the US stopped recognising the Republic of China government in Taiwan it did not abandon Taiwan’s security China went on to build its own economic ties with Taiwan under the “One Country Two Systems” slogan Anwar Sadat’s trip to Jerusalem did not result in a similarly enduring peace He secured the return of the Sinai Peninsula from Israel and became the first Arab leader to establish diplomatic relations with the Jewish state Egypt and Israel are still at peace but the hoped-for broader Arab-Israeli normalisation has not materialised Both Sadat and his Israeli partner in the peace talks Yitzhak Rabin were assassinated by extremists All Arabs have not accepted the right of Israel to exist a Palestinian state has not emerged neither Israeli occupation nor terror have ended What does the success of the “Nixon to China” initiative foretell about the “Modi to Lahore” foray especially when seen in contrast to the miscarriage of the “Sadat in Jerusalem” undertaking The US-China rapprochement had broad support in both countries while the pockets of hatred in the Middle East were just too strong to fashion an effective compromise Sadat will always be admired for his courage and vision but that vision is taking much longer to materialise In the case of India and Pakistan Sharif and Modi definitely seem to have the desire to normalise relations But there is considerable potential for spoilers on both sides to ensure that nothing substantive moves forward The two PMs can ignore politically weak opponents trying to play to the gallery at home On the Pakistani side all major political parties have welcomed Modi’s trip though that has not been the case in India So far it seems that the Pakistan military too is on board with Sharif’s efforts to resume dialogue through foreign secretary-level talks But will Sharif be able to shut down all jihadi groups in Pakistan including India-specific groups such as the Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Muhammad What will Modi and Sharif be able to offer those in Pakistan who believe there should be no normalisation of ties until the issue of J&K is resolved India’s final offer on Kashmir — an adjustment along the LoC in which both sides largely keep what they have — has been on the table since 1963 It has not been acceptable to Pakistan Militancy is seen by hardliners in Pakistan as the only way to keep the Kashmir issue alive precluding a total shutdown of all jihadis Then there are the votaries of Hindutva who cannot stop talking of “Akhand Bharat” and Pakistan’s Islamists who think the Prophet has prophesied Ghazwa-e-Hind — a great battle for Islamisation of India BJP general secretary Ram Madhav is the latest ideologue to speak out of turn about “Akhand Bharat” giving fodder to Pakistan’s “Ghazwa-e-Hind” extremists who deem India an eternal enemy of Pakistan That nuclear weapons should change simple-minded ideological equations does not occur to either Sharif’s foreign affairs advisor Sartaj Aziz probably had these factors in mind when he said after the Modi stopover in Lahore that he did not expect much from the initial phase of Pakistan-India talks Then what if anything might be accomplished from Modi and Sharif holding hands in Lahore From Modi’s perspective it would be good to have a ceasefire in militant attacks similar to the one that resulted from talks during the Manmohan Singh era following the standoff over the attack on India’s Parliament It lasted for several years allowed India to break the back of the militancy in J&K and ended only after the 2008 Mumbai attacks Sharif on the other hand might just be seeking to assert himself in external relations while trying to open space for trade with India Pakistan’s Punjabi business elite want trade with India and as a member of that elite Sharif does too though Pakistani critics of such trade also abound The best outcome in the India-Pakistan case for now comprises modest possibilities These should not be dismissed lightly but they do not reflect a “Nixon to China” moment that dramatically transforms adversarial relations into a positive partnership The writer director for South and Central Asia at the Hudson Institute

Diamond League meet in the London Stadium today and insisted off the track matters didn’t concern him The 34-year-old — a four-time Olympic gold medallist and five-time world champion having achieved the 5000m and 10000m double twice in both sporting showpieces — said he could have done little about his medical records being hacked by Fancy Bears and then leaked to the press last week “Other things don’t distract me I’m only in control of my legs Never will I fail a test” said Farah “I run year after year with joy and there’s not much more you can do “I love being on the podium hearing the anthem and making people proud to be British I love what I do and I’m good at what I do — you can’t worry about other stuff” Whilst Farah posted an impressive warm-up run for the world championships and his track swansong in London in three weeks’ time there were others too who made statements of intent Jamaica’s 100m and 200m women’s champion Elaine Thompson won the 100m coming from behind to edge out her great rival Dafne Schippers despite wearing shoes which resembled trainers “I do have on spikes but they are very petite They are built especially for me and made lighter” said Thompson “I’m really looking forward to the worlds A lot of Jamaicans are in London and it’s like our home town” There was a cracking race in the women’s 100m hurdles with world record holder Kendra Harrison pushed the whole way by Australia’s Sally Pearson who experienced her greatest moment on the same track in 2012 by taking Olympic gold “She (Pearson) really pushed me and I hit a few hurdles as I felt her next to me” said Harrison who made it 21 successive wins For Pearson it was a welcome return to form after injury blighted the past two years “My goodness I can’t believe it” beamed the 30-year-old “I knew I was in good shape This is far out I am really excited I’ve been able to prove myself” Merritt returns to form Aries Merritt suggested he could well be a title

was her first appearance of the season in the Diamond League “I’m running into shape” said the 31-year-old who has six Olympic gold medals but just one in an individual event “I just so love the sport and I am going to keep fighting hard” Nijel Amos threw down the gauntlet to the 800m title contenders when the Botswana athlete ran the fastest time in the world this year in 1min 4318sec on the track where he won Olympic silver behind David Rudisha in 2012 “I have just kept the faith and worked hard and now I hope to see the fruits realised in August” said Amos who has battled back from injuries There was an emotional send-off for Paralympian legend David Weir who won his final track race — the 800m — in the stadium where he won three titles in the 2012 Paralympics “That is definitely the

Tebas the La Liga chairman told Barcelona based sports dailyMundo Deportivo PSG are reportedly lining up a blockbuster bid of over 200 million euros for the Brazilian player which is enough to trigger his release clause So far Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde and club president Josep Bartomeu have denied that the player wants to leave Even though Bartomeu claimed the Parisians would have to shell out big bucks to acquire his services But should PSG fork out the 222 million Euros required to bring Neymar to France they would be at trouble to fulfill the financial fair play rulesthat limit a team to losses of no more than 30 million euros over a three-year cycle This despite their mega-money sponsorship deal with the Qatar tourism board “PSG cannot have figures in which PSG’s commercial rights exceed those of Real Madrid and Barcelona” said Tebas “No-one believes that We’ve carried out economic studies and it’s impossible It means that the Qatari state is injecting money and that
