“The resolution of Kashmir dispute in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions is imperative for durable peace in the region,” underlined the PM.
He was addressing the joint session of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Legislative Assembly and Kashmir Council in Muzaffarabad today.
Mr. Sharif said Pakistan will continue to extend moral, diplomatic and political support to Kashmiri people for their unprecedented struggle for the right to self- determination.
In addition, Pakistan seeks meaningful and result oriented dialogue with India for the resolution of outstanding issues. However, the agenda of Pakistan-India dialogue will remain inconclusive without inclusion of Kashmir dispute.
The Prime Minister once again reaffirmed that Pakistan will not accept any solution of Kashmir dispute that is contrary to the aspirations of Kashmiri people.
Paying rich tributes to the martyrs of Kashmir cause, Nawaz Sharif said despite the brutal use of force by the 700,000 Indian troops, the Kashmiri people are relentlessly continuing their struggle for their just cause.
Time is not far away when the clouds of oppression will shed and the Kashmiri people will see the dawn of independence, he said.
Nawaz Sharif said he has forcefully raised the Kashmir dispute at the international forums including the United Nations and the OIC. He said the United Nations will have to break its silence on the implementation of its resolutions on Kashmir dispute.
AJK Prime Minister Abdul Majid and Leader of Opposition in Azad Kashmir legislative assembly Raja Farooq Haider and President of All Jammu and Kashmir Muslim Conference Sardar Attique Ahmad Khan also spoke on the occasion.
