    Swiss neutrality to the fore

    These Swiss people, they really do take their neutrality seriously.

    Pakistan approached the World Bank to step in over the disputed Baglihar dam project in Jammu & Kashmir after bilateral talks had failed. Meanwhile, Pakistan's education minister declared that Pakistan should go to war against India over the issue.

    Raymond Lafitte was appointed by the World Bank to do the job. A draft report apparently is worded such that both India and Pakistan can claim that their position had been justified. The report suggests that India should reduce the height of the dam as well as the storage capacity, but India would keep the sluice gates near the bottom of the damn.
