Hurriyat Conference (G) chairman Syed Ali Geelani today welcomed the statement of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan that Kashmir is the core issue between India and Pakistan and the two countries should resolve it through dialogue, saying that “It reflects the state policy of Pakistan.”
“I on behalf of Kashmiris offer my congratulation to Imran Khan on his achievement,” Geelani said in a statement.
He said that the recently held elections in Pakistan would lead to a stable government in that country and all the religious and political organizations would work together.
“We pray for the prosperity and stable Pakistan and hope that all religious and political organizations in Pakistan will serve to their best for progressive and stable Pakistan. The country has a political importance in the Muslim world and this country is center of hope not only for the sub-continent but for the whole Muslim Ummah,” the spokesman said.
Hailing Imran Khan for clear Kashmir policy, Geelani said, “Now it is time for Delhi to reciprocate. Delhi should come clear on Pakistan’s offer. We hope Pakistan’s offer and spirit of flexibility will be reciprocated by Delhi so that new vistas of cooperation are opened for resolution of issues including Kashmir issue in accordance with aspirations of Kashmiri people.”
Stressing for the cordial relation between Iran, Afghanistan, China, Bangladesh, Nepal and Pakistan, Geelani said, “The best relation among these countries will lead the region to overall stability, peace, development, and progress. We hope Pakistan’s PTI chief will lead Pakistan and improve relations with neighboring countries. Global cooperation and friendly relations are keys to successes and prosperity.”
Meanwhile, Hurriyat executive council members today expressed deep anguish over the continuous house detention of its chairman Syed Ali Shah Geelani and plight of detainees languishing in different jails.
