New Delhi: A decision on Kashmir will be
taken by the Centre after Wednesday’s all-party meeting
convened by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Defence Minister A
K Antony said on Tuesday.

"Important decisions have to be taken after carefully
assessing all aspects. Cabinet Committee on
Security had a very long meeting yesterday. Ultimately we thought before
we take a final decision, we will take into confidence all the
major parties so that everybody is involved," he told
reporters.

"Don`t worry, we will take a decision. Tomorrow is the
all-party meeting. After that, we will take a decision," the
minister said when asked why the CCS was unable to take a
decision yesterday on issues, including withdrawal of Armed
Forces (Special Powers) Act from some parts of Jammu and
Kashmir.

About yesterday`s violence in the Valley after reports
of desecration of Quran, Antony said, "We are pained about
developments yesterday. As we all know, the situation is very
serious. We have to handle the situation carefully."

He appealed to all sides to show restraint.
