Kashmir Core Issue with India: Pakistan

Srinagar: Pakistan on Tuesday said that Kashmir is the core issue between Pakistan and India and it should be resolved in a peaceful way through dialogue.

In an interview, Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said, “Pakistan is sincere in resolving this issue but India has not responded positively to its offer for composite dialogue.”

According to Radio Pakistan, Nafees Zakaria called upon the international community and world bodies to intervene to stop “Indian forces’ brutalities and human rights violations” in Occupied Kashmir.

“Pakistan has continuously been raising the issue at the United Nations and other fora and significant achievements have been made in this regard,” he said.

“According to the vision of the Prime Minister, Pakistan is striving for shared economic prosperity in the region and wants to establish relation with India on the same lines,” he asserted.

Answering a question, Zakaria said Pakistan wants to resolve water issues with India under the umbrella of Indus Water Treaty (IWT).

To a question, the FO spokesperson said Pakistan welcomes the Trump administration and is looking forward to working with them.
