India has given a cautious reaction to Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf's new proposals on resolving the Kashmir dispute.
Without commenting on the proposals, Indian Foreign ministry spokesman Navtej Sarna said Tuesday such ideas should be discussed in an ongoing dialogue and not in the media.
He said Kashmir is only one of many topics being discussed in a peace process launched earlier this year.
General Musharraf told reporters Monday the two countries should consider making some parts of Kashmir independent, putting them under joint Indian-Pakistani control or placing them under U.N. administration.
India considers Kashmir to be an integral part of its territory and has in the past rejected any proposal to re-draw boundaries.
Pakistani and Indian officials are in the midst of ongoing peace talks that include the topic of Kashmir.
