Pak-India border tension dangerous for region


ISLAMABAD:The Hurriyat forum led by Mirwaiz Umar Farooq has described the continued border tension between Pakistan and India as dangerous for the peace of entire region.

The Hurriyat forum spokesman in a statement issued in Srinagar said that thousands of people residing in villages close to the Line of Control (LoC) have been compelled to vacate their houses and move to some safer places, KMS reported.

He said that it was a fact that the Kashmir dispute was the main factor for the Pakistan-India tension and plight of the Kashmiris.

He said that durable peace in the region was impossible without settlement of the dispute in accordance with the aspirations of the Kashmiri people.

The forum spokesman appealed to the world community to come forward and help in settling the lingering dispute to save the South Asian region from a possible destructive war. The spokesman urged the leaderships of both the countries to come to the negotiation table and sort out a feasible solution of the Kashmir dispute so that permanent peace could be established in the region.APP/AFP
