Strain in Pak-India ties will remain until Kashmir is resolved’, Says Pak FM Qureshi

Islamabad : Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Thursday said that Pakistan wanted good neighbourly ties with India but the strain in bilateral relations would remain until the Kashmir dispute was taken to its logical end.

Addressing a seminar on Kashmir at the National Press Club, the minister said the entire nation was united on the issue of Kashmir, which is also the cornerstone of Pakistan’s foreign policy.

He said the Indian stance on Kashmir was contrary to the basic principle of the division of the subcontinent, which was based on including the Muslim-majority areas in Pakistan.

Qureshi said Kashmir was illegally annexed with India and highlighted the role of the Kashmiri Maharaja in this regard.

He said Kashmir was still on the agenda of the United Nations and the Kashmiri people had drawn the world’s attention to this issue by rendering immense sacrifices. He said the Kashmir struggle was not confined to Srinagar anymore, but it was recognised across the world.
