Srinagar, September 01, 2015 (PPI-OT): In occupied Kashmir, the All Parties Hurriyet Conference has urged the Indian leadership to shun intransigence on the Kashmir dispute and take steps to settle it for peace and stability of the south Asian region. The APHC spokesman in a statement in Srinagar termed the recent assertion of Pakistan Prime Minister, Mohammad Nawaz Sharif, as a reflection of seriousness and political farsightedness.
Nawaz Sharif had recently said that Pakistan wanted to resolve all outstanding issues with India including the Kashmir dispute through peaceful negotiations. The APHC spokesman said that the position of Pakistan, US and international community that the two countries should resolve their differences and issues through dialogue clearly demonstrated that the tension between India and Pakistan was not in the interest of the region.
“The recent assertions of US National Security Advisor Susan Rice wherein she stressed that Kashmir issue should be resolved through meaningful dialogue between India and Pakistan shows the significance of the lingering dispute for the regional peace and stability,” he added. Meanwhile, the spokesman said that an APHC delegation visited JVC hospital to see Sajad Ahmad Mir of Nowhatta who was injured in the firing of Indian forces. “The delegates expressed serious concern over the crackdown on youth in old city and stated that all dictatorial measures were being taken to suppress the voices of Kashmiris,” he added.
