PHILADELPHIA, April 9 (APP) Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States Jalil Abbas Jilani has observed that Jammu and Kashmir dispute has aggravated militant and jihadi sentiments in the South Asian region and called upon the international community to play an assertive role for the peaceful resolution of the lingering dispute between Pakistan and India.
Speaking to a conference organized by US Commander Special Operations in the city of Philadelphia, the ambassador asked the international community to view the rise of extremism worldwide from the perspective of inter-state and intra-state conflicts.
