ISLAMABAD, Oct 5 (APP): Minister for Kashmir Affairs and
Gilgit Baltistan Chaudhry Muhammad Barjees Tahir Wednesday hailed Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif’s stance on the issue of Kashmir.
In his reaction to the Prime Minister’s address to the joint
sitting of the Parliament, he told APP that at all international

Pakistan would continue to extend moral, political and
diplomatic support to the Kashmiris, he said.
The minister said the situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir had deteriorated due to India’s cruel and barbaric acts, and abuse of human rights.
The occupation forces had been massacring innocent Kashmiris, he added.
