EDM number 587 in 1996-97, proposed by Stephen Timms on 26/02/1997.

That this House welcomes the remarks made by the Prime Minister in Pakistan on 14th January that 'there are three essential parties to a solution to the Kashmir issue: the government of Pakistan, the government of India and the people themselves who live in Kashmir', endorsing in particular his recognition that Kashmiris themselves must be a party to resolving the dispute; notes that in the deeply-flawed elections of September 1996, held in Kashmir in the presence of several hundred thousand Indian troops, candidates supporting constitutional change for Kashmir could not participate; and declares that a lasting resolution will only be possible when the people of Kashmir have been able freely to express their own aspirations for the political and constitutional status of their homeland.

This motion has been signed by a total of 34 MPs.
