    How Bhutto wrecked a Kashmir solution

    There was only one period of four months, between December 1962 and March 1963, when there could have been a peaceful, negotiated settlement of the Kashmir dispute. India had just been humiliated in the autumn 1962 war against China, changing equations in the region. Pakistan used the Indo-China breach to its advantage, ceding China's border claims in Kashmiri territory under its control to initiate an alliance that has held for more than four decades. Britain and America persuaded Pakistan not to open a second front while Indian troops were retreating along the Himalayas in 1962, and Pakistan wanted compensation for good behaviour.

    Bhutto, then Ayub Khan's young foreign minister, led the Pakistan delegation; the elderly Swaran Singh headed the Indian side. Talks were held in Rawalpindi, Delhi, Karachi and Calcutta. Both sides agreed that Kashmir should be divided, and India offered 1,500 square miles to seal the deal. Bhutto was contemptuous of this gesture from a 'defeated nation'. He demanded the whole of the Valley, graciously leaving only the small district of Kathua for India.

    What fool Bhutto Was offered 1500 sq miles of Kashmir.

    And the idiot declined this when india was on its knees and Pakistan had both CHINA & AMERICA as its allies.

    No wonder Pakistan finds itself where it is today economically & diplomatically.

    IT WILL NEVER ARISE AGAIN. #

    Does anyone knows the details of what was offered in those 1500 miles.
    If this news is true than how come Pakistani's balme India of not trying to resolve the issue?

    If Bhutto had taken the deal, TOI would be gloating that India shortchanged him.

    It's just Indian media antics, nothing to see here...

    It's Half story... poor guy asked for whole Ksahmir but rejected, then thought of taking whole J&K and started preparing for war and in 65 he tried his best but lost :( then again its Payback time and India made its move and we all saw sweet 71...

    No. India would have invaded Kashmir illegally like they invaded Hyderabad and Junagadh.
