Solution to Kashmir issue vital for regional peace: Aziz
Islamabad, Nov 22 (IANS) Pakistan’s foreign policy chief Sartaj Aziz on Tuesday said that solution to the Kashmir issue was vital for peace in South Asia.
Speaking at a conference on ‘Strengthening Peace and Cooperation in South Asia: Incentives and Constraints’, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s Foreign Policy Advisor Aziz also spoke about “possible threats” due to “Indian brutality” in the area, Dunya News reported.
He accused India of continuously “violating” ceasefire on the Line of Control despite peace initiatives by Pakistan and committing “atrocities” in Jammu and Kashmir.
Aziz said both countries should sort out issues through mutual negotiation and cooperation.
He said “Pakistan believes in peaceful co-existence based on mutual respect for sovereignty and territorial integrity but at the same time it can not remain aloof from the prevailing situation in the region”.
