New Delhi: Sharply differing with President Pervez Musharraf, Pakistan Prime Minister Mir Zafarullah Khan Jamali today asserted that UN resolutions calling for a plebiscite remained the basis of finding a solution to the Kashmir issue. Musharraf had said Pakistan was ready to set aside its demand for settlement of the issue through UN resolutions and favoured adopting a flexible approach and meeting 'halfway' for a solution, prompting criticism. 'The basis of the whole solution lies in the UN resolution. That has to be kept in mind. You cannot overlook it,' Jamali told NDTV. He added: 'When President Musharraf said 'set aside', he probably meant...Yes they have to follow.' 'The UN resolutions will be carried through. They have to come up,' he said and warned that if the resolutions were abandoned, it would make things 'difficult to work' between India and Pakistan.
