ThoughtSpace Episode 6: Pakistan's New Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa & India

9 December 2016
A conversation between Ambassador G Parthsarathy and Richa Bansal

The India-Pakistan relationship has been at an all-time low since the Uri attack, with India closely watching the change in guard of the Pakistani army chief, the de-facto power centre there. With the replacement of Raheel Sharif with General Qamar Javed Bajwa last week, who is known to be pro-democracy, a new equation is expected to take shape between the two countries, and the larger geopolitical scenario is also likely to be impacted. 

In the sixth episode (above) of CPR’s podcast, ThoughtSpace, Richa Bansal talks to Ambassador G Parthsarathy, a career diplomat and Honorary Research professor at CPR, who has also been the High Commissioner of India to Pakistan, to understand what General Qamar Javed Bajwa's appointment as the new Army Chief of Pakistan means for India and the region at large.
