World community can’t ignore Kashmir issue: NA speaker


March 15, 2019

ISLAMABAD: National Assembly (NA) Speaker Asad Qaiser has said that the recent tension between Pakistan and India is a cheap step of Indian Prime Minister Modi to hijack the Indian general elections while the response of Pakistani political leadership was model of restraint and patience, and the whole parliament remained united during this time.

“The ever decaying situation in Indian Held Kashmir (IHK) must not be observed just in the context of terrorism because it is an issue of humanitarian values, and India is bent upon committing atrocities against Kashmiris in IHK as even the United Nations Council on Human Rights concedes these atrocities as breach of basic human rights. The resolution of Kashmir issue is the key to peace in Subcontinent, the world community cannot ignore this issue as all world community needs to make serious efforts for resolving it,” he expressed these views during his meeting with the Ambassador of Argentine Ivan Ivanissevich, who called on him in the Parliament House on Thursday.

He mentioned that opening of Kartarpur Corridor and releasing the Indian pilot are obvious steps from Pakistani side to maintain peace in the region. He also termed the Kartapur Corridor as the corridor of peace in the region.

The speaker said that Pakistan and Argentine have always been enjoying close relations which Pakistan always regards high, and he wished to enhance these relations by parliamentary diplomacy and economic cooperation. While stressing the need to increase the trade volume between both nations, he said there is an opportunity for both the nations to enhance economic cooperation. He invited the Argentine businessmen to invest in Pakistan.

He also felt gratitude for having Inter-Parliamentary Friendship Group in the National Assembly of Pakistan and hoped this forum will provide opportunity for both nations to enhance friendly relations.
