PPP rejects Musharraf's proposals

By B. Muralidhar Reddy

ISLAMABAD, OCT. 31. The Pakistan People's Party (PPP) has rejected the President, Pervez Musharraf's `proposals' for resolution of the Kashmir issue as these were at variance with the resolutions of the United Nations Security Council and envisaged division of Kashmir.

In a statement here, the PPP termed the approach of the present regime as premature. It said the move was unlikely to succeed while diluting Pakistan's historic stand without a quid pro quo.

It rejected the remarks of the Pakistan Foreign Minister, Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri, that the PPP was opposed to defusing tensions with India through dialogue, as baseless and contrary to facts. Mr. Kasuri had, on return from a foreign tour, accused the PPP of raising objections to a dialogue on the Kashmir issue and of slogan-mongering.

The PPP said there was a difference between the substance of the dialogue with India and the specific Kashmir division proposals made by the regime.
