MIRPUR: Calling for an early and peaceful resolution of the Kashmir issue, Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Prime Minister Chaudhry Abdul Majeed stressed that the settlement be in line with the aspirations of the people of AJK.
“The early and peaceful settlement of the Kashmir dispute is key to speedy progress and prosperity in nuclear-armed South Asia,” Majeed said in a statement issued in Muzaffarabad.
The premier observed that peace in South Asia would remain under threat until the Kashmir issue was resolved.
Indian aggression has posed a great threat to peace in South Asia and now even the Middle East and Europe have fallen in the range of the missiles.
“United Nations must take immediate notice of these increased nefarious aggressive designs of New Delhi and stop India from this stance which may lead to the ignition of a nuclear conflict in the region,” the AJK prime minister said.
Fifteen million people of AJK are living under Indian suppression, he said, and called world communities to help free Kashmiris from Indian shackles.
“Any further delays in the peaceful solution to the Kashmir issue could lead to a nuclear conflict between the two arch rivals in South Asia,” Majeed said.
