COVER NOV 30th 2009
Developments have shown that there is a deep rift between Jammu region and the Kashmir–Valley. If they should remain united, a compromise must be found based on mutual respect and trust.
J&K, as it was before partition in 1947, is at present under the rule of three countries (1) China: Aksai Chin and a territory of 5.180 km2 ceded by Pakistan to China; (2) India: J&K State comprising Jammu-region, the Kashmir-Valley and Ladakh (districts Kargil and Leh); (3) Pakistan: Azad Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan (Northern Areas).
The population of these specific regions is totally different from each other: culture, history, traditions, language, religion, etc. In J&K State, this is also the case for the three regions: Jammu-region, the Kashmir—Valley and Ladakh region.
In order to find a permanent solution a dialogue is necessary on three levels, as we emphasise already since so many years: (1) bilateral level: between India and Pakistan; (2) national level: between the Government of India, the J&K State Government and the representatives of the civil society of the three regions; (3) internal level: between the different regions of J&K.
