It’s official, Kashmir not Holbrooke’s job

At a meeting in Washington in early December, a high-level Indian delegation warned members of Barack Obama's transition team that New Delhi may pre-emptively make Richard Holbrooke persona non grata if his duties as special envoy for South Asia were to include India or Kashmir, according to a US magazine. State Department spokesman Robert Wood, meanwhile, reiterated Holbrooke's mandate did not include India or Kashmir.
