US Plans Re-Merger of India, Pak Desks

Discussion on India's Investment in USA's Upstream Oil & Gas Sector
  • Seven years after the State Department was restructured to de-hyphenate US relations with India and Pakistan, reversal of the move is being considered.
  • De-hyphenating policy was started under President Bush and was sealed by Obama administration.
  • Under this policy India and Pakistan are dealt in different silos without referring to their bilateral relations.
  • It enables US to build close ties with India without factoring reaction from Pak.
