While maintaining that there was no military solution to Kashmir conflict, Pakistan-administered-Kashmir (PaK) president Sardar Masood Khan has said that “Indian obstinacy” could push nuclear armed India and Pakistan to another devastating war.
“India and Pakistan have fought three wars over Kashmir and Indian obstinacy on the Kashmir issue, along with inhuman atrocities in Kashmir and Indian shelling on the civilian population living along the Line of Control (LoC) could bring both nuclear-armed states to the brink of another devastating war,” Khan said.
He said there was no possible military solution to the Kashmir issue and India will have to initiate dialogues with Pakistan to find a peaceful resolution to this conflict.
Speaking to a delegation of 48th Pakistan Navy Staff Course participants in Muzaffarabad, Khan said Pakistan always sought peaceful resolution on Kashmir through dialogues. “…but India is adamant to settle the issue through military might by suppressing the voice of Kashmiri people for their internationally recognized right to self-determination”.
Khan asked the United Nations Secretary General to explore a viable solution to Kashmir conflict.
