ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria Saturday clarified that there is no change in Pakistan’s policy on Kashmir issue.
“This issue should be resolved according to aspirations of Kashmiris in line with United Nations Security Council resolutions,” Zakaria said during an interview.
The FO spokesman maintained that Pakistan wants an amicable solution of Kashmir issue through dialogue but India was creating hurdles in granting the right of self-determination to Kashmiris.
Nafees Zakaria said the main bone of contention between Pakistan and India is Kashmir issue and relations between the two countries could not be normalized until this issue was resolved.
The spokesperson said India wanted to divert the world’s attention from Kashmir issue by using negative tactics.
He said New Delhi heated up situation on Line of Control and the working boundary and carried out concocted terrorist attack in Uri at a time when Pakistan was going to highlight Indian atrocities and human rights violations in occupied Kashmir at the United Nations.
