India 'not a threat to Pakistan'
Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari said in an interview with the Wall Street Journal that India is not a threat to Pakistan, and in fact never has been, and that the militants in Kashmir are terrorists.
This is Zardari basically making a radical departure from national stances of the past. Pakistan and India have engaged in conflicts before, and the militants in Kashmir used to be supplied by Pakistanis.
Also, Zardari said that the U.S. was firing missles at militants in Pakistan and got the OK from his government.
What the Pakistani citizenry will think of this remains to be seen, but considering Zardari has basically come out and said the exact opposite of what's traditionally been said about these issues, it might not turn out so great.
This was just a little news brief on BBC, but still an interesting one. The quick facts listed could potentially be enough to keep a reader waiting for a follow-up in the coming days.
