Pakistan on Thursday said it wants to “amicably” resolve all outstanding issues, including Kashmir, with India even as it underlined that no country can unilaterally revoke the Indus Waters Treaty. Kashmir dispute is the “bone of contention” between Pakistan and India, Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said at the weekly news briefing here as he appealed to the international community to “play its due role” in resolving the longstanding issue.”

“We want to amicably resolve all outstanding issues including Kashmir with India,” he added. In his opening remarks during the briefing, which was this year’s last, Zakaria said: “We condemn unabated violation of UNSC Resolutions on Kashmir by India.” Amid reports India reviewed the Indus Waters Treaty following the Uri terror attack, he said the accord cannot be altered or suspended unilaterally.

No country can abrogate the treaty, he said, adding Pakistan is keeping an eye on the evolving situation and it would follow its strategy in case of any violation of the historic accord. “We will assess India’s activities within the framework of the Indus Waters Treaty,” he was quoted as saying by the Radio Pakistan. Pointing out that there is an arbitration mechanism to resolve the dispute regarding implementation of the treaty, he said many disputes related to it were resolved amicably in the past.

        1. Stop talking of Kashmir 2. Bring peace and development within if you can 3. Islamic fanaticism can only land you where you are now which if not checked/stopped will only destroy stan itself 4. Show guts to accept that cultural and trade relations will help easing of tension and are mutually beneficial 5. Take steps to promote people to people interaction and bilateral tourism 6. Fundamentalists and jihadis (you have lots of them) who you created to make thousand cuts in India have only cut stan and will cut you more if not checked 7. What is your report card for last 70 years? 8. Where do you stand vis a vis India? 9. China will only use you for own benefit 10. Stand on your own, which is not possible for you given background of your creation, rather than still looking around for help that someone will come and rescue you 11. Your very existence is based on being anti India but this existence will evaporate if you don't change

          UN is an insution created by the West to sell weapons to world and keep conflicts going, one thing it does achieve is lowering the potions of people unwilling to practice family planning, it helps the West test their weapons on the poor using faith to inflict pain. The UN has never been able to stop the killings and per, all it does is have well paid people from donor countries talk nice things and enjoy great retirement.

            stan has been told time and again to go by our Parliament's unanimous resolution for it to vacate all of occupied territories including those sub-let to China and stop cross border export of terrorists, incursions.lt;br/gt;With the LOC obliterated both should agree to follow rules of IB.lt;br/gt;There is no other outstanding or recent issues with stan to be solved; this being the general feeling among the people and the Govt of India.
