Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said that the "martyrdom of Burhan Wani has brought Kashmir to a turning point" and that India can't deny rights to Kashmiris.

Sharif was the first to address the lawmakers during a joint session of Pakistan parliament called to discuss Kashmir and "Indian aggression" at the Line of Control.

"Kashmiri youth have taken it upon themselves to carry on the movement of freedom against Indian aggression and atrocities," Sharif was quoted by Dawn News.

The Pak premier said that World powers need to ensure that UN resolutions on Kashmir are implemented in letter and spirit.

"We have done everything to make India come to the dialogue table, but india did not let it happen. Our efforts were thwarted over and over again," he said.

"Burhan Wani's martyrdom has brought Kashmir to a turning point," said Sharif, adding that the valley was bubbling up like a volcano, Geo News reported.

The prime minister said that steps should be taken for withdrawal of Indian troops from Kashmir and political prisoners should be released.
