Below is the quote by Neelam Deo that featured on the Reuters report

Most had predicted dialogue would resume, but few expected concrete action, said Neelam Deo, director of the Mumbai-based thinktank Gateway House.

“It signals from both sides a willingness to get down to the real issues,” she said.

But both Deo and Amir, the Pakistani analyst, cautioned that people should not pin hopes on Modi’s possible visit to Pakistan.

“It’s a year away,” Deo said. “If things go really badly, (he) can say, ‘Sorry.'”


The quote also appeared on a number of Indian and international news publications, including: Daily Mail, Arab News, Yahoo news, India Today, First Post, Defence Talk, Gulf Times, Fair Observer, Tribune India, among others.
