NYT urges India, Pakistan to take steps to find permanent solution to Kashmir issue

The leading US newspaper , New York Times has urged India and Pakistan to take steps to find a permanent solution to the Kashmir issue

The paper in its editorial said a solution to a conflict that touches religious and nationalist nerves must ultimately come from within, through talks among India, Pakistan and the people of Kashmir. 

It said tensions have cooled between two countries but their nuclear arsenals mean unthinkable consequences are always possible. 

The editorial said the United States can encourage India to modify its approach to those opposing its rule in Kashmir, which the United Nations and other groups say involves widespread human rights abuses.
