Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday said Kashmir is the “core issue” between India and Pakistan and its resolution would ensure durable peace in the region. “Kashmir issue must be resolved according to the UN resolutions as per the commitments made by the Indian Government,” Sharif told British National Security Adviser Sir Mark Lyall Grant, who called on him at PM House in Islamabad.

WHAT ELSE IS MAKING NEWS

Sharif said Kashmir is the “core issue” between India and Pakistan and its resolution would ensure durable peace in the region as he urged the world to take note of alleged human rights violations there, officials said. “The world community must take a note of the grave human rights violations and atrocities” in Kashmir, he said and claimed that over hundred people have been brutally killed, hundreds have been blinded by the use of pellet guns while thousands have been injured in the last few months alone. Sharif said that Pakistan is peace loving country and pursues the policy of maintaining friendly relationships with all its neighbours, they said.

Grant appreciated his policy of reaching out to the neighbours for establishing cordial relationships with them. “We encourage and support your efforts for peaceful cooperation with your neighbouring countries,” Grant said. He said that the commitment of political government and armed forces, supported by the people of Pakistan have resulted into phenomenal victory against terrorism, referring to operation ‘Zarb-e-Azb’ in the northwestern tribal region.

Grant congratulated the Prime Minister on successfully completing the IMF support programme and achieving macroeconomic stability. The British NSA also called on Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif at army headquarters on Monday. “Matters of mutual interest and regional security came under discussion. The visiting dignitary acknowledged the significant achievements made by Pakistan in their fight against terrorism and continued efforts for regional peace and stability,” said a statement issued by the army.

    Keep chanting Kashmir. This issue was settled in 1947. All Muslims to stan and all Hindus in india. If hi let Muslims live in india that does not mean it was legal or is legal. Muslim problem is in 4 districts, army should rund them up and march them to their beloved country stan. Muslims call themselves stanis anyway. This happened in 1947, in Burma recently. India has no Kashmir problem but Muslims problem.
