My dear Dr. Asrar Ahmad Saheb,

17 February, ;!000

In the latest issue of your journal, I havepeen the solution to the Kavhmir problem suggested by you. I am glad that this comes very close to what I have been suggesting since beginning. My approach is based on the fact that the State is multi-ethnic and historically an artificial construct. Northern Areas and the south western region below the Pir Panjal which are Punjabi-speaking should be incorporated in ,Pakistan. Ladakh and Jammu should be integrated in India. The Valley of Kashmir which is a geographical, linguistic and cultural entity should enjoy, like Andorra on the border of Spain end France, complete internal autonomy, under the ioint

umbrella of India and Pakistan, which should together underwrite
its development and be responsible for its defence and foreign relations Kashmiris should have access to both lndia and Pakistan for education, trade and even residence while neither Indians nor Pakisantanis have the right to settle in the Valley. In my view, this is the only feasible solution which serves the interests of all partners - India, Pakistan and the Kashmiris. With kind regards, )yours sincerely,

P
