In yet another attempt to internationalise the Kashmir issue, Pakistan’s ambassador to the US Jalil Abbas Jilani has called on the global community to help resolve the long-pending dispute with India, calling it a “nuclear flashpoint” in South Asia. Delivering a keynote address at the World Affairs Council, at Washington-based think-tank, on Thursday night, the envoy said Kashmir was a “nuclear flashpoint” and it must not be underestimated.

Associated Press of Pakistan reported that the envoy regretted that India was undermining all diplomatic efforts for a dialogue, including its refusal to engage at the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) forum.

“The peace and stability in South Asia will not be possible without resolving underlying disputes, particularly the Jammu and Kashmir being the core dispute,” Jilani said.

“The international community and the US in particular need to play a role in seeking a peaceful settlement of Kashmir dispute between India and Pakistan, in accordance with the relevant UN Security Council resolutions,” he said.

    Kashmir is a muslim state and rest of states that have muslim majority should also have the option to be part of a muslim country.. so they are free to do what their religion allow them freely.. Hindues by faith are radical and cannot tolerate others and treat them like animals and kill them on petty matters.. Wipe out stan ??? 😀 you Indians you will be begging in the next few years..

                    Matter is simple. Just engage the failed state in arms race and destroy it economically. Ordinary citizens will then revel against the fanatic pigs of stan army

                                          What can be more international than the United Nations? Just follow the UN Resolutions by vacating PoK, restoring the original demographics and getting back the Shaksgam Valley that was illegally ceded to China. Are they hoping that China and Saudi Arabia will give them "Kashmir"? Are they selling charas openly in the markets of Pindi nowadays?
