Islamabad, Dec 16: Prime Minister of Pakistan Administered Kashmir, Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan on Thursday urged the Australian government to play its role in the resolution of long-pending Kashmir dispute.
“A just and peaceful settlement of Kashmir issue would usher an era of peace and prosperity in south Asia besides enhancing investment opportunities in the region”, Khan said while talking to an Australian delegation here.
The PaK premier also apprised the visiting delegates of the prevailing political and human rights situation in Kashmir. While highlighting the importance of K-resolution he said, peace and prosperity of the subcontinent was inescapably linked to the settlement of the long-pending dispute. “Kashmiris would welcome any Australian role in this regard”, he said adding that a UN Security Council recommended solution to the dispute could open up largest vistas of regional and international commerce in the region.
Terming PaK as a safe and favourable place for foreign investors, Khan invited the Australian investors to make fully safeguarded investment in hydropower generation, farming diversification, Water Management, Technical Training to youth, Tourism, and Minerals.
He pointed out that the region had the potential of producing more than 17,000 megawatts of hydroelectricity adding the government was ready to hand over the sites and fields to investors.
