India and Pakistan seem to be talking peace:
India, Pakistan say they aim to normalize ties
By NIRMALA GEORGE, Associated Press – 38 minutes ago
NEW DELHI (AP) — The leaders of India and Pakistan agreed in talks Sunday that their countries should adopt a step-by-step approach to resolve their differences and build on a recent thaw in their strained relations.
Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and visiting Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari said the meeting — their first in nearly three years — was friendly and constructive.
“Relations between India and Pakistan should become normal. That’s our common desire,” Singh told reporters after the private talks, at which no aides were present.
“We would like to have better relations,” Zardari said. http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5jrz8DiorNJLqxrAH2750svE4OrYA?docId=fc38a5ffbaf44a63bec78d1d7d0ec08f
Peace and a reduction of hostilities is a good thing. Jesus taught:
9 Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. (Matthew 5:9)
So why might the India/Pakistan talks be of prophetic concern?
There are several. For one, the Bible tells of a time coming when there will be a Eurasian union of the “kings of the east” (Revelation 16:12) will put together a 200,000,000 man army (Revelation 9:16). This would likely involve India and probably also at that stage Pakistan. So, any cooperation between those nations now could assist in them being part of the end time confederation of Revelation 9:16 and 16:12.
What might the India/Pakistan talks be of 2012 prophetic concern?
As my book 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect explains, many in the New Age Movement tend to feel that 2012 will mark a time of transition from a time of war to a time of peace. And while wars and conflicts are expected in 2012, various New Age supporters will likely point to developments such as the India/Pakistan talks and other possible peace deals as proof that humankind is shifting from an age of war to an age of peace. The Bible, however, in several places, warns against false declarations of peace (e.g. Ezekiel 13:10-16).
And while real peace will come after Jesus returns, there will be wars, false deals, and oppression until then. While it is good that Pakistan and India are trying to resolve their differences through talking instead of wars, in this age, they will not be able to bring real and lasting peace (Isaiah 59:8; Romans 3:10-18).
But Jesus, “the Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6), ultimately will.
World events continue to align with properly understood biblical prophecy.
Several articles of possibly-related prophetic interest may include:

End of Mayan Calendar 2012–Might 2012 Mean Something? There is a Mayan calendar prediction for change in 2012. 2012 changes were also centuries ago predicted by the Hopi Native Americans (the Hindus may have some predictions for the next decade as well). Do these Mayan/Hindu/Hopi prophecies have any value? Why might Satan have inspired this date? Does the Dresden codex show destruction of the earth by flood? Can the great tribulation start before 2012?
Does God Have a 6,000 Year Plan? What Year Does the 6,000 Years End? Was a 6000 year time allowed for humans to rule followed by a literal thousand year reign of Christ on Earth taught by the early Christians? When does the six thousand years of human rule end?
