ISLAMABAD, Aug 16 (APP): Advisor to Prime Minister on
Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz Tuesday said Pakistan was ready to
resolve the Kashmir issue through dialogue, but India was
budging from its commitment by completely neglecting the core
He said Pakistan was ready for dialogue and such a good
intention had been supported by the world.
Commenting in a private TV programme over Pak India
ties, the advisor said for Pakistan, Kashmir was the core issue
and its solution through dialogue between Pakistan and India
was a must in accordance with the wishes of the Kashmiri
people and the United Nations’ resolutions.
He said India was completely neglecting the issue by
declaring Indian Occupied Kashmir (IOK) as its integral part
which had created a tense situation.
The world had also realized that the situation in IOK
was not normal but a grave one, he added.
To a query, he said India had deployed about 700,000
of its armed forces in the Occupied Kashmir and unleashed a
chain of brutalities against the innocent Kashmiri people who
had launched an indigenous struggle against the oppressive
The situation now developing in IOK had never been
witnessed in the past, he added.
The strong resentment was even voiced inside India
against Modi’s government oppressive policies in the IOK, Sartaj
said, adding that about 70 Kashmiris had been martyred in the
recent wave of terror, besides there was complete curfew and
Media and Internet blackout in the occupied valley.
The advisor also outrightly rejected Indian Prime
Minister Narendra Modi’s statement on Balochistan.
He said Pakistan was supporting Kashmiri people through
diplomatic and political channels, besides highlighting the
human rights violations in the IOK at the international level.
All the claims made by India over IOK had proved as
misleading, he added.
