K J M Varma in Islamabad | April 12, 2005 17:07 IST

Days before his visit to India, President Pervez Musharraf on Monday said that Pakistan will not make any one-sided concessions on Kashmir and both the countries will have to be flexible to resolve the problem.

At a meeting with leaders of Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir in Islamabad, Musharraf also ruled out accepting the Line-of-Control as the permanent border to settle the Kashmir imbroglio.

He said there are positive signals from the Indian leadership on efforts to resolve the Kashmir issue and Islamabad will reciprocate any flexibility shown by New Delhi.

Flexibility, courage and boldness on the part of both Indian and Pakistani leadership could lead to a Kashmir solution, acceptable to all, including the people of Kashmir, official APP news agency quoted him as saying.

He said if India were to show flexibility, Pakistan will also be prepared to reciprocate.
