Srinagar: The Syed Ali Geelani- led Hurriyat Conference Wednesday welcomed the statement of Pakistan Prime Minister’s national security advisor Sartaj Aziz.
Aziz on Tuesday said that Pakistan will not start any dialogue with India if Kashmir issue was not part of the agenda.
In a statement, Hurriyat (G) spokesman Ayaz Akbar said that the statement was encouraging for the Kashmiri nation.
He appealed Pakistan government to remain firm over its present stand regarding to the Kashmir. “Don’t show any kind of flexibility in the stand,” he appealed the Pak government.
The spokesman said that Pakistan was paying a heavy prize for supporting the right to self determination of the Kashmiri people and accused India of direct involvement in the worsened internal situation of Pakistan. “
“India is funding and providing weapons to the terrorists in Pakistan,” the spokesman alleged.
The spokesman said that “the communal and the fascist forces of India have got a strong backing of the government in India. “They want to have an optimum gain from this and they want to eliminate the international status of the Kashmir dispute on both internal and external levels,” he said.
“It is the most crucial stage and the Pakistani leadership should deal this situation with extra caution, courage and farsightedness,” he added.
Akbar alleged that India wants to implement its “expansionist designs at any cost.” “They also want to go ahead by trampling down their comparatively weak neighboring countries. They can’t do anything to a country that shows courage and boldness to them,” he added.
Akbar said that the submissive and flexible Kashmir policies of Pakistan in the past have proven damaging. “It is an important factor for the delay caused to the solution of this dispute but the stand which the present Pakistan government has adopted is encouraging,” he said.
