“Rarely, even by the tortured standards of the Pakistan-India relationship, has there been as much farce and confusion surrounding the now cancelled talks,” the Dawn said in an editorial.

“While it was obvious that neither side wanted to call off the talks officially, it was also patently clear that neither side was willing to do much to rescue them in Delhi,” the daily said.

It said that India’s angry reaction to a proposed meeting between Pakistani National Security Adviser Sartaj Aziz and Kashmiri separatists “is perhaps a sign of Modi’s true intentions.

“He does not really want dialogue with Pakistan, but does not want to be seen rejecting talks outright in front of the international community. Yet, for all the Indian obstinacy, there have been some serious errors by the government in Pakistan,” it said.

“That terrorism was made central to the upcoming round of talks without any mention of the broader Kashmir issue appeared an error on Sharif’s part.”

It  also added, “Perhaps what is truly discouraging is the trend that has become apparent in the Sharif-Modi era.

“The prime ministers themselves mostly have encouraging words about the bilateral relationship, but they allow their underlings to damage goodwill and trust. ”

Chinese smartphone maker Huawei on Tuesday entered into a partnership with Indian consumer electronics firm Micromax Informatics to boost its off-line sales in India. “We have partnered with Micromax to launch our smartphones at multibrand outlets in India,” Rishi Kishor Gupta, Vice-President, (Huawei Brand), Consumer Business Group, Huawei India, told IANS. Huawei’s online brand Honor phones are not part of this deal.

“In Micromax brand stores, Micromax phones will be available. But as far as the distribution and retail network that we have, Huawei will be capitalising on that,” said Deepti Mehra, Head, Marketing, Micromax Informatics.

“There will be no co-branding. Micromax will continue separately when it comes to launching of own phones. There is no conflict of interest because Micromax addresses to the mass segment and Huawei the premium category,” she said.
