"The Palestinian problem needs to be solved urgently since it is the root cause of the conflict between the West and the Islamic world," Pakistani President General Pervez Musharraf was quoted as saying on Tuesday. During a speech in New York, Musharraf added that the ongoing violence in the Middle East and in Afghanistan was closely tied to the fate of the Palestinian people. "If the Palestinian problem is solved peacefully other disputes in the world between the West and Muslims will also be solved," said the Pakistani president.
