Basit also lauded business communities of the neighbours for creating ever more bridges between the two countries.
The expo is being held from April 3-7 at the World Trade Centre here and is showcasing Pakistan’s textiles, fashion fabrics, food items, and spices, etc. Around 78 Pakistani companies/brands are displaying their products at the expo.—PTI

    Firstly resolution of the lingering Kashmir issue is important for peace and stability. People of Kashmir want Azadi, referendum as promised in UNSC. The key for need to move ahead for peace, political and economic stability is resolution of Kashmir dispute. Kashmiris’ paid sacrifices for just cause. It is due to resolved Kashmiri people living in hell, atrocities want its settlement in accordance with their aspirations.
    Indian armed forces enjoying life by turing this land of saints into graveyards because of unresolved Kashmir.

    Hundreds of thousands are physically injured, mentality disturbed while thousands widows, orphans, missing in custody and lying in unmarked graveyards cry for Azaadi . Settlement of Kashmir dispute will lead strong friend ship between two neighboring atomic powers and will end military violence in Kashmir.

    Kashmiris want to live with its own dignity, respect with smiling face and peaceful atmosphere. End occupation and black laws will open new chapter in the region.
