From the Paper:

"The new millennium greeted the United States with the first attack on America since the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor, and the relationship between India and Pakistan didn't fare much better. Tension and hostilities, despite the ongoing peace talks, continued along the line of control until fighting again broke out with India "shelling Pakistani military positions" and verbally condemning them for what they called "cross-border terrorism" ("The Brink of War"). Conflict continued throughout the year with several extremely violent and deadly attacks by India and presumed Pakistani backed Kashmiri militants ("The Brink of War"). The fighting between the two nations got so bad that by the end of 2001 it was feared that a third Indo-Pakistani war might break out. In an effort to relieve some of the mounting tension, President Musharraf, in January of 2002, "gave a keynote speech pledging that Pakistan would not allow terrorists to operate from Pakistani soil. He again called on the government of India to resolve the dispute over Jammu and Kashmir through dialog" ("The Brink of War").

"Despite the past conflicts, India sent out a hopeful message of peace to Pakistan when it sent aid to the nation following a 2005 earthquake that left the country reeling.
"Local reports said the crates were labeled 'from the people of India to the people of Pakistan'... Pakistan at first did not accept India's offer, saying relief supplies should be sent to India's own casualties. And when Pakistan's prime minister confirmed the relief would be accepted, he also reminded reporters that Pakistan had flown supplies to India in the aftermath of the Gujarat earthquake in 2001" ("Indian Quake Aid Reaches Pakistan," 2005)."
