Resolution of outstanding Kashmir dispute can improve the relationship between two countries. According to United Nations charter, a plebiscite or referendum should be held in the occupied or disputed territory to resolve this point and the referendum should be free and fair accordingly to the aspirations of Kashmiri people or under the supervision or observation of United Nations observatory group for transparency.

India and Pakistan have fought three wars on this issue but all in vain, there should be no more wars only think tanks should stress for a free and fair referendum in Kashmir. These should make Kashmir an independent state, they could side with Pakistan or they could go with the status quo. Resolving this important issue would have a great geo strategic impact.
