Manmohan Singh’s Pakistan initiative has got praise from CPI(M) general secretary who has consistently been flaying the prime minister’s foreign policy since the days of the India-US nuclear deal.

“One of the few positive aspects in foreign policy is the prime minister’s refusal to adopt a confrontationist stance towards Pakistan despite what sections in his government and party wish,” Karat wrote in an article for the coming issue of the party’s mouthpiece, People’s Democracy.

Karat, however, went on to criticise the government for its various policies, including the foreign policy.

“India has gone along with the United States which is targeting Iran on the nuclear issue. It once more voted against Iran in the IAEA, unlike other non-aligned countries. India is not playing the role of a leading non-aligned country”, Karat wrote.
