Pravin Sawhney talked about the strategic matrix in South Asia, the shifting contours of the Sino-U.S. rivalry, and the positions of Pakistan and India on the military force-military power pendulum. He also discussed the centrality of dialogue as a mechanism of conflict-resolutions in South Asia while warning that snubbing the conflict-resolution and prioritizing conflict will be a costly-affair for India. He also stressed the need for India and Pakistan to understand the future of a technology-heavy war, and to prepare accordingly.
