    Pervez Musharraf's four point solution

    In Indo-Pak relations, the term 'back-channel diplomacy' is heard very often. But Pervez Musharraf has evidently perfected the art of 'TV channel diplomacy'. In an interview to NDTV, Gen. Musharraf outlined his four-point solution for ever-lasting peace in Kashmir ™

    • Kashmir will have the same borders but people will be allowed to move freely back and forth in the region
    • The region will have self-governance or autonomy, but not independence
    • Troops will be withdrawn from the region in a staggered manner
    • A joint supervision mechanism will be set up, with India, Pakistan and Kashmir represented
    In January this year, he asked India to move troops out of Srinagar, Baramulla and Kupwara on CNN-IBN, the three areas where terrorists strike the most often.

    I have just one issue with his 'four-point solution for ever-lasting peace in Kashmir ™': Why doesn't it say a single word about Pakistan agreeing to rein in the terrorists it foments, supports and sponsors?

    Reactions from Nitin and Offstumped.
