He said resolution of Kashmir issue was must for durable peace and security of the entire regions. Rahimdad Khan said PPP KP have staged protest demonstrations in the KP against killing of civilians in IOK and vowed to continue the moral and political supporter of Kashmiris.

Ajid Ali Khan, ANP leader said self determination was the right of people of Kashmir as pledged to them by the UN Security Council. He said Kashmir issue could only be addressed through negotiations instead of wars.
