Qamar Zaman Kaira continued by saying “ since Kashmir is the jugular vein of Pakistan as said by father of the nation Quaid e Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah, no power on earth can separate Kashmir from Pakistan”. He said that unfortunately, Kashmir case was lying pending as unresolved global issue for last 75 years because of India’s traditional betrayal and denial of international norms and commitments about the just and principled settlement of the Kashmir conflict.
He paid rich tributes to Kashmiris especially those living in the bleeding Indian illegally occupied Jammu Kashmir State for continuing their prolonged struggle for the liberation of the motherland from Indian yoke giving the supreme sacrifices of their lives and properties – suffering the long reign of state terrorism, violence and the worst human rights abuse at the hands of over a million of Indian occupational forces in the state, who have turned the occupied valley into the biggest prison on the planet.
Referring to the current internal political situation of the country, Qamar Zaman Kaira said that dialogue was always the best way to resolve issues. He said that the government believed in moving to address the political situation through dialogue and not through any deadlock, he added.
He said that since the general elections process has started in the country, we would like to hold the elections simultaneously in all four provinces of the country besides the elections in Azad Jammu Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan assemblies for the emergence of the like-minded governments in AJK and GB as a result of the fresh polls both in GB and AJK, in larger interests of the populations of the two regions.
