UN resolutions only way to settle K-dispute: PaK Prez
NISAR AHMED THOKAR
Islamabad, Feb 17: The President of Pakistan administered Kashmir (PaK) K Raja Zulqarnain Khan on Thursday reiterated that Kashmir issue could only be resolved by implementing United Nations resolutions.
While talking to a delegation of Kashmiri leaders, led by Dr Ghulam Nabi Fai, here Khan said, “Holding plebiscite in the region is the best way to settle the Kashmir dispute once for all. Granting the inalienable Right of Self Determination to Kashmiris is the only way.”
He said that “Indian intransigence” was a major hurdle in the way of peaceful resolution of the dispute. “India has been constantly defying the international law thereby refusing to implement the relevant UN resolutions in Kashmir for past 63- years,” he added.
Khan said that international community should first settle the Kashmir issue and then grant permanent seat to India in United Nations Security Council. “The OIC and the EU countries can play very important role in this regard,” he added.
Khan also briefed the Kashmiri representatives about the International Conference being held at Muzaffarabad in April 2011.
The delegation that called on PaK PM comprised Ghulam Muhammad Shafi, Rafique Ahmed Dar, Abdul Majid Malik, Ghulam Nabi Nowsheri, Tufail Altaf Bhat and others, whereas Sheikh Waleed Rasool and Haifiz Sadiq were also present on the occasion.
