Srinagar: Pak Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Thursday stated that Kashmir is an integral part of Pakistan’s identity.
He was addressing the inaugural ceremony of two day international parliamentary seminar on Kashmir in Islamabad.
As per Radio Pakistan, Nawaz said, “Our hearts beat and sink with our Kashmiri brethren. We share each moment of their pain and pleasures. We rejoice in their happiness and grieve in their gloom.”
Speaking on the occasion Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz said that Jammu and Kashmir dispute is a stigma on the international process. He said both Kashmir and Palestine are the two longest resolved items on the UNSC agenda.
The adviser said the denial of right of self determination to the Kashmiri people promised by the international community as well as by the founding leaders of India has compounded the sufferings of the Kashmiri people.
