Pervez Musharraf Beijing, Apr.12 (ANI): Former Pakistan President General (retired) Pervez Musharraf has said that the US President Barack Obama’s revamped AFPAK policy is incomplete without India, and a solution to the Kashmir issue.

Replying to queries following his lecture at the Shanghai Institute for International Studies here, Musharrraf said nothing was new in Obama’s policy, and it was a continuation of US’s older strategies for the region.

Some heavy lobbying from the Indian-American community forced Obama to exclude India from the policy, Musharraf said.

Musharraf emphasised on the need for closer global cooperation to defeat extremism. He also urged the Chinese leadership to play a more proactive role in the issue, The Nation reported.

Musharraf is on a visit to China to deliver a series of lectures in major cities of the country focusing on the relationship between Pakistan-China. (ANI)
