Pakistan's Endgame in Kashmir

Title:Pakistan's Endgame in Kashmir
Author:Husain Haqqani
Publication:India Review / Routledge, part of the Taylor & Francis Group
Enumeration:Vol. 2, No. 3, pp.34 - 54 /July 2003
Abstract:Although Pakistani leaders often describe the dispute over Kashmir as the "core issue" between India and Pakistan, Pakistani policy is driven by a deeper fear of India and about Pakistan's national identity. Pakistan's approach to the resolution of the Kashmir dispute has been characterized by a series of tactical moves, lacking a coherent strategy or a planned end game. Only a sustained peace process can address the multiple factors that give rise to Indian and Pakistani suspicions about each other's intentions and Pakistani tactics designed to prolong the conflict in the hope of eventually altering the status quo. Pakistan does not have a clearly thought out endgame in Kashmir and attending to its insecurities could be one of way of ensuring the emergence of a realistic endgame without violence.
