Kashmir is cornerstone of Pakistan Foreign Policy: FO

ISLAMABAD - Kashmir is a cornerstone of Pakistan foreign policy and it will continue political, diplomatic and moral support to Kashmiris struggling for their right to self-determination.

Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal, addressing a weekly briefing in Islamabad on Thursday, said the wave of Indian brutalities continues unabated in the occupied valley.

He said Indian forces killed eight Kashmiris last week alone and also injured 170 innocent civilians.

He said Pakistan calls upon international community to take cognizance of human rights abuses in Indian Occupied Kashmir as well as the UN Report and immediately call upon India to stop the bloodshed.

Replying to a question, Faisal said Pakistan believes there is no military solution to Afghan conflict, and durable peace in the war-torn country can be achieved through an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned solution only.

He said bringing Taliban to talks is a shared responsibility of all the countries, including the US.
