Islamabad, Feb 4 (ANI): Emphasising on the need to create an enabling environment for success of peace process between New Delhi and Islamabad, Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf on Monday said the Kashmir issue could be resolved through ’sincerity, courage and flexibility’.

We firmly believe that an enabling environment is necessary for the success of the peace process, Musharraf said in a message on the eve of the ‘Kashmir Solidarity Day’.

We remain engaged in a sincere, sustained and purposeful dialogue with India on Kashmir. We believe that with sincerity, courage and flexibility, we can achieve a solution to the long-standing Kashmir dispute, he added.

Musharraf said that his four-point proposal aimed at breaking the decades-old deadlock has only demonstrated Pakistan’s ‘readiness to work constructively to find a solution acceptable to all parties, especially the Kashmiris’.

The former General of the Pakistani Army reiterated his countrys commitment to extend moral, political and diplomatic support for a just and peaceful settlement of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the wishes of the Kashmiri people.

Pakistan stands in solidarity with our Kashmiri brothers and sisters and assures them of our full support in their just struggle for self-determination, Musharraf said.
