Pakistan is committed to the Kashmir issue and would continue to provide support to the Kashmiris for its resolution, President Pervez Musharraf said on Saturday.
During a meeting with the newly appointed President of Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK) Raja Zulqarnain Khan, he said Pakistan has unwavering commitment towards Kashmir and that his Government would continue to provide diplomatic, political and moral support to Kashmiris for resolution of the issue.
Musharraf also assured full support of his Government in the reconstruction and rehabilitation of the earthquake-hit PoK.
Earlier, in his acceptance speech, Khan urged India to seriously consider Musharraf's proposals to resolve the Kashmir issue and to resume the dialogue process stalled after the Mumbai blasts.
"It's essential for the Indian leadership to show sincerity for finding an honourable solution to the Kashmir issue in accordance with the wishes of the Kashmiris. It should also give serious consideration to President General Pervez Musharraf's suggestions of joint control, demilitarisation and self-governance," Khan, who assumed office in PoK capital Muzaffarabad on Friday, said.
He succeeded retired General Anwar Khan as President.
