“Pakistan seeks a peaceful and prosperous neighborhood which is the key principle of Pakistan’s Foreign Policy,” he said, however, lamented that despite sincere efforts by Pakistan, India has refused dialogue with Pakistan to resolve outstanding issues. Instead of addressing the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, India has unleashed a reign of terror in Indian occupied Kashmir. He reaffirmed Pakistan’s political, moral and diplomatic support to the just cause of the Kashmiri people.
