Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf has pledged to curb attacks by militants in Indian Kashmir, in order to advance the peace process with nuclear rival India. On the last day of a visit to the Philippines, General Musharraf told reporters that as far as the Kashmir dispute is concerned, the time is ripe for resolving the conflict. He said Pakistan will stop militants from attacking the recently started bus service across the ceasefire line in Kashmir. And he said acts of terrorism like the recent attack on the bus service must be suppressed at all costs. General Musharraf also said he wants to correct misconceptions about Pakistan. He rejected accusations that Islamabad harbors militants and helped organize Osama bin Laden's al-Qaida network. The Pakistani leader said his trip to the Philippines, which began Monday, was aimed at cementing commercial and trade relations.
