Resolving Kashmir: Are India and Pakistan on the Verge of an Agreement?

Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2010/06/30/Solve_Kashmir_First_New_Thinking_on_the_S_Asia_Conflict Journalist Steve Coll summarizes negotiations between India and Pakistan in recent years on the ongoing disputes over Kashmir. While President Obama has not addressed the issue since 2008, Coll says the 2007 framework agreement laid out by India and Pakistan may indicate a forthcoming resolution. ----- Though other regional conflicts may capture more headlines, none reaches as deeply into the past nor haunts the present as ominously as Kashmir. The region, divided between India and Pakistan in 1947, is today perhaps the most militarized place in the world. At this Open Society Institute event, four panelists discuss the remote origins of the Kashmir conflict, as well as its longterm consequences, including its incalculable human costs, its effects on Indian and Pakistan polities, the American role in the dispute, and the prospects for a resolution. In addition, they will trace the tentacles from Kashmir that have extended to other regional conflicts, from the mountains of Afghanistan to the streets of Mumbai. - Open Society Institute Steve Coll is President and CEO of New America Foundation, and a staff writer at The New Yorker magazine. Previously he spent 20 years as a foreign correspondent and senior editor at The Washington Post, serving as the paper's managing editor from 1998 to 2004.
