  • Kashmir: The year ahead and beyond

Shahid Khaqan Abbasi on Monday said while addressing AJK Legislative Assembly that Kashmiris are not alone, 200 million Pakistanis stand by them.

He called upon the ruling and opposition benches to set aside their political differences and work with more vigor for the Kashmir cause.

In her message on the Kashmir Solidarity Day, the chairperson of Dukhtaran-e-Millat, Syedah Aasiya Andrabi urged the people of Pakistan in general and the people at the helm of affairs in Pakistan to move beyond merely observing Solidarity Day and take concrete and practical steps for the resolution of the Kashmir dispute.

The foreign minister Pakistan always wanted the peaceful solution to the core issue of Kashmir and the world should ensure early implementation of the United Nations resolutions for that objective.

"The hearts of Pakistanis and Kashmiris beat together", he added.

President Mamnoon Hussain is to address the main ceremony of the Kashmir Solidarity Day in Islamabad later today.

Highlighting Pakistan's steadfast support to the freedom struggle of the Kashmiri people, the Speaker reinforced Pakistan's unwavering historic stance on Kashmir and added that the people and Government of Pakistan will continue to provide all kinds of moral, diplomatic and political support to the Kashmiri people at every forum.

Indian border forces violated the ceasefire 1,970 times in 2017, the statement said, adding that the deliberate targeting of civilian populated areas is "deplorable and contrary to human dignity".

The development budget for the PaK had been doubled.

"Repression of Indian occupying forces can never suppress valiant spirit of Kashmiris who rightfully await awakening of global community for plebiscite under United Nations resolution".

Saeed walked free on November 24 after the Pakistan government decided against detaining him further in any other case, in a setback to India's efforts to bring to justice the perpetrators of the Mumbai terror attack.
