Azad Jammu and Kashmir Prime Minister Sardar Abdul Qayyum Niazi has appreciated the role of overseas Kashmiris in projecting the Kashmir issue at the international front.
“Overseas Kashmiris have been playing a significant role for projecting Kashmir issue abroad and the government will support them for resolving the lingering Kashmir dispute,” he said while talking to a delegation of overseas Kashmiris who called on him on Saturday.
The delegation was led by All Parties Kashmir group in British parliament Secretary Lord Qurban Hussain.
He added that the incumbent government would project the Kashmir issue at every international forum in accordance with PM Imran Khan’s vision.
New welfare projects for the socio-economic uplift of the people of AJK would be started with the support of the federal government, he said, adding that the AJK would be turned into a “real base camp” of the liberation movement.
Niazi said: “Special efforts will be made with the cooperation of Punjab and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa governments for the improvement of roads leading to K-P and Punjab to provide better travelling facilities to the people of the state.”
Lord Qurban Hussain said the overseas Kashmiris were the “vanguard” of the Kashmir liberation struggle and would continue to highlight the Kashmir issue at the international level with full determination.
Meanwhile, a delegation of the welfare council of overseas Kashmiris belonging to Britain and Europe also called on the AJK prime minister and briefed him on the issues of the overseas Kashmiris.
They invited the premier to participate in the Overseas Pakistani Welfare Council conference being held next month in London.
