ISLAMABAD: Pakistan says it is the need of the hour to bring an end to the Indian State-sponsored terrorism in Occupied Kashmir through peaceful dialogue.
In a statement, the Foreign office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said this is imperative for ensuring durable and sustainable peace and stability in South Asia. Pakistan hoped that the international community would play its rightful role in facilitating such an outcome.
About Government of India’s announcement designating Dineshwar Sharma, a former Indian intelligence officer, as the Central Representative to initiate “interaction and dialogue to understand legitimate aspirations of people in Occupied Kashmir, the foreign office spokesperson said that the measure did not appear to be sincere and realistic.
He said for any dialogue process to be meaningful and result-oriented, it has to include the three main parties – India, Pakistan, and the Kashmiris.
Nafees Zakaria said without the participation of the Hurriyat leadership, no interaction or dialogue would carry any weight or meaning.—Radio Pakistan
