    Excellent move, should make it clear to the rest of the world that Pakistan stands on a higher moral ground when it comes to Kashmir.

    Our stance is flexible and we wish only what the Kashmiris wish, while the Indians are the ones carrying on with their personal agenda with Kashmir.

    Basically nothing new here.
    We've always put the interest of Kashmiri's first but...if all of it wants to be 'Azad Kashmir', just let them be.

    Yeah but India and most ignorant commentators on the issue make it look like a tug of war between India and Pakistan.

    It is actually much different. Kashmiris should choose, thats all Pakistan wants.

    Then why the fuss about forcing political parties in Azad Kashmir to swear accession of Indian Kashmir to Pakistan, before they are eligible for any official recognition?

    Why was JKLF sidelined in the early 90s by the ISI in favour of Hizbul Mijahideen?

    The hollow proclamations of the article are quite evident when one sees the political status of Northern Areas, and the justification that will follow about its status after this post.

    "By saying what he said to NDTV, Musharraf seems to be suggesting that the Kashmir dispute is now a matter to be resolved between India and Pakistan, and for his part Musharraf is willing to "give up" the Pakistani "claim".

    The international community has no role in resolving the Kashmir issue, if it is a bilateral matter between India and Pakistan, and as far as the Kashmiri people are concerned, they can negotiate their future with India. That is what India has argued for years.

    That runs contrary to Pakistan's official position on Kashmir that it is the unfinished business of partition. Pakistan's entire stand has been based on the argument that the Kashmiri people have not yet exercised their right of self determination in accordance with United Nations resolutions. "

    Yet another move by Mush to probably get his name in history as the leader who resolved Kashmir dispute

    Every leader wants to do that. Solving the Kashmir dispute is the most Pro-Pakistani thing out there!

    No. Solving the Kashmir dispute means the end of Army dominance in the Pakistani political space.

    I'll keep it short: India is the boogeyman, Kashmir is the victim, Civilian Govt's are incapable so Army is the hero.

    No he is not. He is proposing 'solutions' that aren't, and he knows that, just to please his American masters.

    There are plenty more threats out there......and whilst there are external and internal threats then the army won't lose any of said dominance.
