BBC NEWS | South Asia | Kashmir solution 'within grasp'

BBC NEWS | South Asia | Kashmir solution 'within grasp' Kashmir solution 'within grasp'
Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf has said a solution to the dispute over Kashmiris within the grasp of himself and the Indian leader, Manmohan Singh.

He was speaking at the concluding session in Islamabad of a meeting of South Asian parliamentarians.

"We must grasp a fleeting moment," Gen Musharraf told reporters afterwards.

At least four Indian soldiers were killed on Friday in Indian-administered Kashmir. More than 40,000 people have died in 14 years of insurgency.

Harmony

"I personally feel it [Kashmir's solution] should be done within the tenures of [Indian] Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and myself," Mr Musharraf said in Islamabad.

"Since I believe that this harmony exists between us two, I strongly believe - if we really are sincere about reaching a final peace - it would be more possible that it is reached between us two."
