Omar Abdullah calls for flexibility to resolve Kashmir issue

National Conference President Omar Abdullah has urged India and Pakistan to adopt a more flexible approach on resolving the vexed Kashmir issue.

Jammu, May 19 : National Conference President Omar Abdullah has urged India and Pakistan to adopt a more flexible approach on resolving the vexed Kashmir issue.

Abdullah has said any unilateral solution to the six-decade old problem would not work.

"The ground reality is that every time you have unilaterally tried to resolve Jammu and Kashmir, you have failed. It is a bilateral matter between India and Pakistan. Even the Prime Minister himself accepted in the third round table that there are two dimensions to Kashmir problem, one internal and other external," Abdullah said.

Kashmir separatists did not attend the third round table conference called by Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh in April 2007, saying they did not want to share a platform with leaders who had already agreed to Kashmir as an integral part of India.

Abdullah also said Islamabad has shown flexibility in its stance and New Delhi should seize the opportunity.

"The fact that Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf was willing to accept that India's secular character will have to kept in mind when the settlement to the Kashmir issue is done. The fact that UN resolutions can be put aside before that solution is found. The fact that Pakistan today claim that they have never claimed Kashmir. The fact that lines cannot be changed, but the two sides can be brought closer," he added.

The third round table conference on Jammu and Kashmir, which met in Delhi on April 24, has charted a clear route for consolidation of peace, as also speeding up development of Jammu and Kashmir.
