Musharraf to focus on Kashmir dispute at UN

  ISLAMABAD, November 5 (Internews): The draft speech of Pakistan
 President General Pervez Musharraf that he is scheduled to deliver at
 the United Nations General Assembly session next week has been prepared,
 an official said here on Monday.
 "President Musharraf will address heads of state, foreign ministers and
 delegates of 189 countries of the world at the UN on November 11," the
 official said. "The draft of his speech has been prepared in light of
 his directive, issued by him after consultations with his colleagues in
 the military and cabinet ministers."
 He said the president would raise the longstanding dispute of Kashmir in
 his address and emphasises Pakistan's stand for its solution in
 accordance with the resolutions of the UN Security Council.
 "The threatening statements of the Indian civil and military leadership
 in the situation arising out of the US attack on Afghanistan as a
 consequence of September 11 tragedy have been particularly incorporated
 in the speech of the president," the official informed.
 US President George W Bush will host a dinner in the honour General
 Musharraf on the evening of November 10, where the two leaders will
 discuss the Afghanistan crisis.
 Before his arrival in Islamabad on November 16, President Musharraf will
 also hold important talks with British Prime Minister Tony Blair in
 London and with French President Jacque Chirac in Paris.
 President Musharraf, who will reach Paris on November 7 on the
 invitation of his French counterpart, will leave for New York next day.
 On November 9, President Musharraf will hold meetings with heads of
 state from different countries of the world. He will be meeting UN
 Secretary General Kofi Annan on November 10.
 "Despite the fact that General Musharraf's meetings in Paris, New York
 and London are extraordinarily import, he has decided to take with a
 small delegation during his visit to France, the United States and
 Britain," said the Foreign Office official.
 "President Musharraf has rejected a suggestion that he use a chartered
 plane for his journey from Islamabad to Paris to New York, Washington,
 Western Coast, Chicago, Los Angeles, London and back to Islamabad," the
 official informed.
 The official said that General Musharraf would take ordinary passenger
 flights for his three-state journey.
 During the visit the president will be accompanied by about a dozen
 persons including Foreign Minister Abdus Sattar, Finance Minister
 Shaukat Aziz, Commerce Minister Abdul Razzak Dawood and Science Minister  Dr Ataur Rehman.
 Also accompanying Musharraf will be his Chief of Staff Lt Gen Javed
 Hamid, Principal Secretary Tariq Aziz, military spokesman Maj Gen Rashid
 Qureshi, Additional Secretary Foreign Affairs Riaz Mohammad and
 additional secretary for US affairs. -Internews
