Pakistan Senate or upper house on Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution condemning the violence in Kashmir's Pulwama district on Saturday that resulted in the death of seven civilians.

The resolution moved by Pakistan People's Party leader Sherry Rehman also reiterated Pakistan's commitment to continue its "moral and diplomatic support" to the Kashmiris, Radio Pakistan reported.

It also asked the government to implement earlier resolutions passed by the Senate seeking the appointment of Special Envoys to raise the Kashmir issue at all international fora.

Separately, President ArifAlvi said on Tuesday that "Jammu and Kashmir is an unfinished agenda of partition and Pakistan will continue to extend moral, diplomatic and political support to the legitimate struggle" of the Kashmiris.

The president said that peace in the region will remain elusive without resolution of the Kashmir issue.
