Pakistan Peoples Party co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari has suggested that India, Pakistan and Kashmiri leaders be part of a commission to work out what should be done in defence and foreign affairs pending a final settlement of the Kashmir dispute.

Zardari, who sent in a written speech for a Tehelka magazine conference in London, called upon India and Pakistan to learn from the India-China model. “India and China both have a dispute but they do not go to war against each other. We must learn from this model to develop our own relations,” a text of the speech, made available in advance, said.

“The PPP has made trade, not conflict with India, a top priority of its relations with India. After 60 years of Independence and mutual acrimony, we must now pledge an end to war, terrorism, death and destruction,” Zardari said.
