Will continue political, moral and diplomatic support to Kashmiri people: Abbasi
SRINAGAR: Pakistan Prime Minister, Shahid Khaqan Abbasi and Chief of Pakistan Army General Qamar Javed Bajwa visited the Line of Control (LoC) in Pakistan-administered Kashmir (PaK) on Friday, Geo TV reported.
Abbasi and Bajwa visited the Chirikot sector along the LoC and were accompanied by PaK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider.
During the visit, the news report said, the Pakistan prime minister was briefed by the general officer commanding the area and was informed of “ceasefire violations by Indian forces”.
“Abbasi condemned the unprofessional approach of targeting civilians residing in the area by Indian forces and reiterated that Pakistan would continue to provide political, moral and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri people for their struggle,” Geo TV reported, quoting a statement from the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
While interacting with the troops deployed there, Abbasi “acknowledged and appreciated their sacrifices in defending the country and for protecting the people of PaK”.
“No other army in the world is parallel to Pak Army. Restoration of peace against terrorism despite our commitments against perpetual threat from eastern border is a milestone achievement and together we shall take it towards enduring peace and stability,” the ISPR quoted Abbasi as saying.
He also interacted with the families of slain and injured civilians while he announced enhancement in financial assistance to the families of the “martyrs and injured”.
During the visit, the report added, Abbasi approved funds to develop bunkers to safeguard the community “during episodes of firing from across the border”.
The Pakistan army chief also ordered the shifting of a teenaged girl to the Armed Forces Institute for Rehabilitation Medicine (AFIRM) for an artificial limb implant as “she had lost her leg during Indian shelling”.
