Pak seeks international intervention
PRESS TRUST OF INDIA
Islamabad, Nov 3: Pakistan Monday said that a “just” settlement of the Kashmir issue was essential for viable peace in South Asia and asked the world community to help solve the problem in accordance with the “aspirations” of Kashmiris.
Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said that India had been telling Kashmiris and the world community for decades that it was willing to find a political solution to the Kashmir issue. “Nevertheless, it never demonstrated sincerity of purpose with concrete steps,” he said in an interview to state-run APP news agency.
Basit asked the international community to help resolve the issue in accordance with the “aspirations” of Kashmiris.
A just settlement of the Kashmir issue is a “sina qua non” for viable peace in South Asia, he said.
The spokesman condemned the killing of civilians in Kashmir.
