Islamabad, Feb 17: In an unexpected move, Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif admitted that the occupation of Kargil by Pakistani troops in 1999 was a misadventure, media reported.

"It was a stab in the back for then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee," reported the India Today.

Pak back stabbed India

India and Pakistan were involved in a peace process at Lahore when war broke out between India and Pakistan in Kargil in 1999. The PM Vajpayee paid a historic visit to Lahore in the same year in February.

"Vajpayee told me that he was stabbed in the back because of Pakistan's misadventure in Kargil, especially during the process of Lahore Declaration. Vajpayee was right. I would have said the same thing - he was certainly backstabbed (in Kargil)," he was quoted as saying by the report.
