PTI govt making efforts for resolution of Kashmir issue: Gandapur

Minister for Kashmir Affairs and Gilgit-Baltistan Ali Amin Gandapur says PTI government is making vigorous efforts for the resolution of Kashmir issue during its five-year tenure.

In an exclusive talk with Radio Pakistan Correspondent Bilal Khan Mehsud, he urged the international community to stand for Kashmiris' birth right to self-determination and get Indian brutalities stopped against the innocent people of Kashmir.

The Minister said India is committing grave human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir by using brute force against innocent civilians.

He said Prime Minister Imran Khan, after assuming office, had made it clear that Pakistan wants peace with India and Islamabad will take two steps if New Delhi takes one towards forging tranquility. He said Imran Khan had also said that Pakistan's desire for peace should not be taken as weakness and there would be no talks with India without discussing Kashmir issue as it is our top priority.

Ali Amin Gandapur said recent report of United Nations Human Rights Commission has, for the first time, acknowledged violations of human rights in Occupied Kashmir by India and exposed the tyrannical face of New Delhi. He said Islamabad demands establishment of Commission of Inquiry by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights for probe into Indian atrocities in Occupied Kashmir.

The Minister paid rich tribute to Kashmiris' struggle against the oppressive Indian regime for not holding plebiscite as promised under the UN resolutions.
