LONDON: The UK-based senior Kashmiri leader and President, Tehreek-e-Kashmir, Mohammad Ghalib has welcomed Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s statement that Pakistan want result oriented and meaningful dialogues with India. Ghalib said in a statement Thursday:
“We welcome Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi’s stance that Islamabad seeks real substantive dialogues with India to address all outstanding issues including core issue Kashmir and not just another photo opportunity”,
He said it is appreciable that Foreign Minister Qureshi at various meetings on the sidelines of UN General Assembly Session spoke in unambiguous terms making it clear that resolution of Kashmir issue is imperative for South Asian security.
“The stand taken by foreign minister is based on principles and reflects the true sentiments of Kashmiri people”, Ghalib said. He added that people of Jammu and Kashmir were expecting from PPP government to repair the damage caused to the Kashmir liberation movement by former military dictator General Pervez Musharraf.
Terming the baseless allegations leveled by India against Pakistan, TeK leader said India can not befool the world community with such absurd accusation.“It is old habit of Indian leaders to blame Pakistan whenever India comes under pressure,” Ghalib stated. He emphasized that Pakistan should stick to its stand that Kashmir is internationally recognized disputed territory and it needs to be settled under relevant UN resolutions and in accordance with the aspirations of Kashmiri people. -SANA
