Can’t accept Independent Kashmir as a permanent solution : Pak Prime Minister

Published

on

The Pakistani Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi has categorically stated that there will not be any support for an independent Kashmir on the land of any part of Kashmiri diaspora.

During a event at the London School of Economics this weekend, he clearly stated his stance in not accepting the concept of an independent Kashmir as a solution.

Don’t want a war with India regarding Kashmir Solution : Pak PM

At the Future of Pakistan Conference at the LSE, he told the gathered students “This is something floated often but has no basis in reality,” further elaborating that the solution lay only in determination by the people of Kashmir.

As long as the issue of Kashmir remained unresolved, relations with India would remain “tense” and progress could only be made on a secondary level, he said. “We are always open to talks — talks at any level and we believe that talks are the way forward and only talks will resolve the situation… war is not an option there.”

“(Both) countries have nuclear weapons… India has developed a new doctrine that has added a new dimension… talks are the only way forward,” he said.

According to the Prime Minister, any expectation of a “great initiative” to take the situation forward was “misplaced” especially since the next elections are round the corner for both countries,

Stating about Pak’s strengthened ties with the US, Mr. Abbasi explained about Pak’s relations with the U.S., Afghanistan, and China for over the past 70 years. He said that Pak’s relationship with the U.S. shouldn’t be seen entirely through the prism of Afghanistan.During his speech and question and answer session with students,  Abassi sought to play down the significance for Pakistan of the U.S. new Afghan policy, insisting that Pakistan had strong relations.

He also rejected the notion of Pakistani safe havens for terror, insisting there were sanctuaries in Afghanistan for attacks in the opposite direction. “Many believe terror emanates from Pakistan — that’s a narrative that is totally wrong,” he insisted. “Pakistan is a country fighting terror for the world… today we have to get rid of this menace and we are committed to fighting that menace.”
