It is in the interest of Pakistan to settle Kashmir issue as per the aspirations of people of Kashmir,” the statement reads.

“Pakistan is basic party to the dispute and hence duty bound, morally, legally and constitutionally, to extend concrete support to the Kashmiris. By ignoring this important issue from past so many years, freedom struggle in Kashmir received a setback. Time has come that Pakistan give prime importance to Kashmir issue and don’t put in cold storage” Salahuddin said.

Salahuddin urged Nawaz Sharief to highlight Kashmir issue as an issue of national importance and pay keen attention towards this issue.“This will send a good message to the Kashmiri people that we stand by you in your just struggle,” he said.
