New York :(APS)September 22, 2016-Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif says the world leaders gave positive response understanding Pakistan’s stance on the Kashmir issue.
Talking to Pakistani newsmen in New York on Thursday, the Prime Minister said he informed the leadership of the United States, China, Britain, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Turkey, and other countries about the prevailing grave human rights situation in Occupied Kashmir, and they all tried to understand Pakistan’s position.
The Prime Minister said Turkey promised to send a fact finding mission to Occupied Kashmir, and a similar response was given by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
Nawaz Sharif said when he shared the dossier on the Indian brutalities in Occupied Kashmir with the UN Secretary General, he was moved by the victims’ photographs, and said the UN diplomats would see into it.
He said that he urged the UN Secretary General to get implemented the resolutions on Kashmir adopted by the world body itself. He said India also promised to give the Kashmiris right to self-determination, but it failed to honor its promises.
The Prime Minister said the world needs to pay attention to the precarious situation in Occupied Kashmir where over 100 people have been martyred and over seventy blinded in about three months. He said the Kashmiris cannot remain silent over this worst violence and they will obviously resist though they remain under the prolonged curfew.
The Prime Minister said the Iranian President, during meeting with him, stated that Chabahar and Gwadar ports will complement to each other instead of being competitors.
To a question, he said India’s allegations against Pakistan are a habit of India, and it never provided any evidence to prove its accusations.
To another question, the Prime Minister reiterated the resolve that war against terrorism will be taken to its logical end. He said Pakistani security forces and civil society have sacrificed a lot in the war against terrorism.
