ISLAMABAD, OCT. 13. The Pakistan Cabinet today decided that any resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir issue must reflect the wishes of the people of Kashmir. A meeting of the Cabinet, presided over by the Pakistan Prime Minister, Shaukat Aziz, articulated its position on Kashmir after a briefing by the Foreign Minister, Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri, on foreign policy issues.
It is not immediately clear what prompted the Cabinet to reiterate about the "wishes of people of Kashmir" in resolution of the problem at a juncture when Islamabad is engaged in a dialogue process with India.
The Cabinet resolve came close on the heels of observations made by the President, Pervez Musharraf, that the time had come for India and Pakistan to eliminate solutions not acceptable to both sides and work towards an acceptable formula.
