India is setting aside political differences to help their neighbors in Pakistan:

India is dispatching a planeload of about 25 tons of food, tents, medicine and other supplies for possible delivery by Tuesday. Pakistani Foreign Minister Khursheed Kasuri said there was no problem accepting aid from its rival.

“When it is a question of tragedy of this magnitude, it’s not a question of one-upmanship,” Kasuri said in an interview with India’s New Delhi Television. “That is why the president of Pakistan has gone on record as having said that we aren’t going to stand on ceremony.”

India and Pakistan are but the latest countries to smooth over differences, taking diplomacy to another level when faced with disaster.

Condoleezza Rice may stop over in Pakistan on her Central Asian trip if she feels it will be helpful to the area.

Pakistan is pleading with the international community for help with the disaster.

The US has already sent much needed helicopters to the disaster area from Afghanistan.
