My right hon. Friend the Foreign Secretary discussed this subject with President Musharraf in Pakistan on 26 February. The UK recognises the efforts being made by Pakistan to curb cross-border infiltration across the Afghanistan-Pakistan border. The UK position on the use of landmines, however, is well known and we urge Pakistan to find solutions with less destructive long-term humanitarian consequences. We note that President Musharraf announced on 2 February that he has decided for the time being not to mine the border.
