Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has urged the political parties to rise above their political differences and speak with one voice in support of oppressed Kashmiri people at this critical juncture. He was addressing the National Parliamentarians Conference on Kashmir in Islamabad on Wednesday.
The Foreign Minister said Modi government has Akhand Bharat mindset and the gravity of situation demands sanity on our part. He said certain political forces should not blow the trumpet which hurts the interests of Pakistan and benefits India. He said those planning to organize Azadi March should turn it into Azadi March Kashmir.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi appreciated the Chairman Senate for holding this conference saying this gives the message that the elected representatives regardless of their differences are united for the Kashmiri people. He said today’s leadership in Pakistan will not show any flexibility on Kashmir dispute. He said today we have the prime minister who will not make any compromise on the interests of Pakistan.
The Foreign Minister once again categorically stated that Pakistan stands fully behind their Kashmiri brethren. He said the world can turn its face from Kashmir but Pakistan never will. This, he said, is the decision of the nation and the Prime Minister of Pakistan.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that Prime Minister Imran Khan will effectively present the case of Kashmiris before the upcoming session of UN General Assembly. He said the Prime Minister in his address will represent the aspirations of Pakistani and Kashmiri people.
The Foreign Minister said that Kashmir dispute stands internationalized today and credit for this goes to the Prime Minister. He pointed out that the UN Security Council held discussions on the festering dispute after a gap of fifty four years despite Indian efforts to get it postponed. He said the UNSC meeting reaffirmed Pakistan’s stance that Kashmir is an internationally recognized disputed territory and it can be resolved only through the UN Charter and the UN Security Council resolutions.
The Foreign Minister said the EU parliament held discussion on Kashmir dispute last night in which it not only voiced concerns over the prevailing situation in occupied Kashmir but also demanded the resolution of outstanding dispute in accordance with the aspirations of Kashmiri people.
