In a statement issued from Srinagar, the under-arrest APHC leader claimed that Nawaz Sharif’s remarks that Kashmir is the main pillar of Pakistan’s foreign policy are the voice of the hearts of Kashmiri people.
“Nawaz Sharif’s remarks epitomise the pain and suffering Pakistan feels for the oppressed people of Kashmir. We had time and again urged Pakistani leadership to direct its envoys to highlight the plight of Kashmiris worldwide; now we are satisfied with the country’s endeavours,” Shah said.
Addressing the envoys conference in Islamabad on August 3, the PM termed support to the Kashmiri’s demand to self-determination in accordance with the resolutions of United Nations Security Council (UNSC) the “cornerstone” of the foreign policy of Pakistan.
He had said that the indigenous movement of Kashmiris for their freedom was rejuvenated with the sacrifices rendered by the young generation. He urged the envoys to highlight the human rights violations in Indian-held Kashmir.
“You have to convince the world that Kashmir is not the internal affair of India. The UN has regarded it as a disputed matter between Pakistan and India,” he told the ambassadors.
