Kashmir has long been a flashpoint between India and Pakistan. India has just made things worse, by revoking the Indian-administered region’s autonomy.
Although Islamabad says not to the point of it considering military action, for now.
Pakistan’s government is looking to challenge Kashmir’s disputed status politically and legally.
It’s downgraded diplomatic ties with New Delhi, suspended trade and shut down an express train service to its neighbour.
India has urged Pakistan to review what it’s doing, in retaliation to what it says is an ‘internal affair’.
Despite the escalation, Pakistan says war is not an option.
But can an armed conflict be averted?
