Musharraf's visit

The ongoing India-Pakistan cricket series, the proposed visit of the Pakistan President on Saturday, etc., are indeed steps in the right direction for creating a favourable climate to strengthen bilateral ties. Though the Kashmir dispute cannot be resolved overnight, other bilateral issues can be solved through diplomacy. This will eventually pave the way for an amicable resolution of the Kashmir issue also.

Since the entire diplomatic world is keenly watching the progress in India-Pakistan peace process, the leaders in both the countries should exhibit statesmanship, keeping aside narrow political differences.

If India and Pakistan can achieve some kind of breakthrough on Kashmir, it would be significant not only for the two countries but for the entire South Asian region. Maybe we should look at a future Asian Union along the lines of European Union.

Gen. Musharraf has said he favours converting the Line of Control into a soft border but is not for making it a permanent one. For his `soft border' concept to succeed, he should ensure that militants are not trained on Pakistani soil and there is no infiltration.
