India-Pakistan: April 21, 2003


  Once more, India offered to open peace talks with Pakistan, but only if Pakistan promised to stop supporting terrorist operations in Kashmir. Pakistan insists it does not support the terrorism in Kashmir, although substantial evidence indicates that Pakistan does provide that support. Pakistani officials will often protest that they are doing "all they can" to halt the terrorist operations in Pakistani territory. This is another way of saying that they feel it is not politically possible to take on the Islamic radical groups running the camps. For this reason, the US holds Pakistan responsible for the failure of peace efforts.

In Kashmir, rebel violence left two civilians dead. 

Indian and Pakistani artillery exchanged fire along the Line of Control, leaving two Pakistani civilians dead.
