From Rediff:

In a major diplomatic embarrassment to India, the maverick Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has supported the idea of an “independent state” for Kashmir and said that it should be a ‘Baathist state‘ between India and Pakistan. See the video.

“Kashmir should be an independent state, not Indian, not Pakistani. We should end this conflict. It should be a Ba’athist state between India and Pakistan,” the Libyan leader said in his address to the UN General Assembly on Wednesday.

Instead of his allotted 15 minutes, Gaddafi spoke for nearly 100 minutes during which he slammed both the United States and the United Nations, and termed the Security Council as the terrorist council.

Gaddafi opposed the induction of big powers into the UN Security Council, saying such a move would further tilt the balance of power.

In his first speech to the General Assembly, he said opening the doors of the UNSC for big powers would “add more poverty, more injustice, more tension at the world level”.

“There would be high competition between Italy, Germany, Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Philippines, Japan, Argentina, Brazil…,” Gaddafi said during his more than one-and-a-half-hour long address.

Stressing that there must be equality among member states, he noted that since India and Pakistan were both nuclear powers, if India had a seat then Pakistan would want one as well.

“We reject having more seats,” said the Libyan leader since it would give “rise to more superpowers, crush the small people.”

  2. A very unfortunate statement by a head of a state. He is no way concerned about Kashmir. The Muslim World wants Kashmir to be an Islamic state. Thats what happened in 1990’s when scores of Kashmiri Pandits were thrown out in the name of ethnic cleansing. I wonder where was Gaddafi then………..

    Thats exactly the Libyan leader Gadaffi wants.He wants Kashmir to be Baathist state.Infact he wants all the Islamic countries under one umbrella,though the other Islamic countries are not ready to buy his idea.

  4. A New Foreign Political Statement – Vision for the Future and Peaceful Progress By Muammar Gaddafi.
    Since Mao´s China began revolutionary and military manoeuvres in borderline of Eastern Kashmir.
    India´s defeat in Sino-Indian war of October 1962, North-Eastern areas has been part of China.
    Chinese authorities have built a strategic roads to territory, connecting Sinkiang and Tibet.
