Chairman of Peoples Democratic Front and MLA Khansahib, Hakim Muhammad Yaseen has welcomed the “commitment” of India and Pakistan to implement the cease fire pact of 2003 to stop cross border firing.
In a statement here Yaseen said that this renewed commitment would go a long way to pave way for a sustained dialogue process between the two neighboring countries, besides bringing immediate relief to the violence hit people of the state especially living nearer to borders. “The commitments by the DGMOs of India and Pakistan to stop cross border firing in accordance with the 2003 ceasefire pact was a healthy sign towards restoration of peace in the turmoil ravaged state.”
He urged for early resumption of talks between India, Pakistan and Hurriyat Conference to resolve the Kashmir issue which is the main bone of contention between the two neighboring countries and cause of violence in the state.
He asked the central government to remove all ambiguities in its talks offer with Pakistan and Hurriyat leaders. “Different statements from the leaders on the issue have raised doubts among the people especially the stakeholders. A clear road map for holding talks with the stakeholders is pre-requisite for any process to become successful,” Yaseen added.
