This report examines the views of India and Pakistan on the significance of Pakistan_s foray into the Kargil Dras sector in a limited war that has come to be known as the Kargil conflict. The goal of the analysis is to assess both combatants_ perceptions of the crisis, with a view to evaluating the possibilities of future Kargil like events and the implications of the lessons each country learned for stability in South Asia. The analysis is based almost exclusively on Indian and Pakistani source materials.The Kargil crisis demonstrated that even the presence of nuclear weapons might not appreciably dampen security competition between the region_slargest states. However, the question remains of whether or not the Kargil war represents a foretaste of future episodes of attempted nuclear coercionif India and Pakistan believe that their nuclear capabilities provide them the immunity required to prosecute a range of military operations short of allout war.
