Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has said India uses pretext of cross-border terrorism and Pakistan-backed groups indulging in violence for not moving forward in improving its relations with his country.

"These are independent groups acting without any guidance or support from anyone, following their own agendas. Let's demilitarise and give self-governance to the people of Kashmir. These (Indian soldiers) are there and kill so many civilians on the slightest of pretexts," he told Newsweek in an interview being published in its upcoming issue.

"This is always the farce they use not to move forward," he said when told that Indians argue that they are not forthcoming because of cross border terrorism and violence elsewhere in India by Pakistani-backed groups.

Asked about his "forward-looking" proposal about self-governance for Kashmir, Musharraf says he gives proposals but India does not give any counter proposals.
