The Foreign Office of Pakistan will launch a dedicated Kashmir Cell to give impetus to the ongoing efforts and find a reasonable solution to the dispute in Jammu and Kashmir. The launch ceremony will be attended by representatives from the opposition parties and officials from the country’s security institutions.
Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi will chair the first session of the Kashmir cell later today. Senior diplomats and Kashmir leadership will also be in attendance.
“The Kashmir cell will work 24 hours a day and we are expecting good results from it,” said the foreign minister optimistically. Qureshi also said that the meeting will discuss ways through which Pakistan can highlight the Kashmir issue on international platforms.
“After taking a go-ahead from PM Imran Khan, opposition’s Mushahid Hussain Syed, Sirajul Haq and Naveed Qamar, have also been invited to the session. We will hear their point of views on Kashmir,” he continues.
Pakistan has been aggressively lobbying to effectively highlight what Islamabad terms as Indian atrocities in Jammu and Kashmir and pressurize New Delhi to end restrictions and communication blockade in the region.
