The International Institute of Strategic Studies, London has warned that India's consistent position of no dialogue with Pakistan on Kashmir issue poses a grave threat to regional and international peace.               

In it’s latest report on South Asia, the Institute said there is a wide scope for misunderstanding and misperceptions between India and Pakistan in the absence of an official dialogue and backchannel diplomacy.                                 

It said any attack from either side would raise the risk of this conflict escalating into a new crisis with Kashmir a potential flashpoint towards the end of 2020.

The report said that India clamped down on every kind of communication and activity in Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir after revoking its special status.
