Musharraf, Blair Discuss War on Terror


Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf and British Prime Minister Tony Blair are holding talks today expected to be dominated by the fight against terrorism, the Middle East, Afghanistan and Kashmir.

Before the London meeting, General Musharraf told the BBC that the global war on terrorism has made the world less safe and is not addressing the social grievances that help recruit terrorists.

In a separate interview, the Times of London quotes General Musharraf as saying he would welcome British involvement in negotiations with India over Kashmir.

Before going to London, the Pakistani leader met with President Bush to review the war on terror, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the hunt for Osama bin Laden.
