Of politics and diplomacy

Most of us saw the joint press conference in Islamabad, addressed by Indian Foreign Minister SM Krishna and Pakistan Foreign Minister Quraishi.

Although the patience of both began to wear a bit thin towards the end, Krishna answered: “that’s your opinion” to a long question by a Pakistan journalist on the ‘rape by Indian Army which is an army of occupation in Kashmir”

My limited question is: would the press conference have gone the same way if it had been Shashi Tharoor in the chair instead of SM Krishna? Curious to know what you think…
