Most Favoured Nation

As someone who is not a connoisseur of matters pertaining to economics, I would like to question your team regarding the entire MFN issue. I have read contradicting reports and opinions from various quarters and can’t seem to make up my mind. Does granting MFN status to India mean that we would be compromising our stance over Kashmir and hence giving the Indians the edge as for as their strategic position in South Asia is concerned? Isn’t this too big a price to pay for mere commercial growth? There are so many other countries that we can choose to enhance our trading ties with. Why India?
