Peace in region linked with resolution of Kashmir dispute: Analysts
Pakistan has called upon India to honor the commitment made by its first prime minister for the resolution of Kashmir dispute in accordance with the aspirations of Kashmiri people.
Speaking in Radio Pakistan’s Nuqta-e-Nazar program, Former Ambassador Salman Bashir said: “Pakistan has raised its voice in the United Nations several times in last decade. Some countries want to enhance their influence in the Security Council of the United Nations which will create unbalance in the world. The countries that have veto power in the Security Council are also not willing to add new members with veto power. There are several countries that are candidate of veto power. From African region, South Africa and from Western Europe, Germany is a strong candidate of the veto power in the Security Council. China is only veto wielding country which plays its role in the development of Pakistan and Afghanistan.”
Senior Journalist Javed Naqvi said: “Kashmir has been a lingering issue between Pakistan and India for the last six decades. This issue has led to war between the two countries for at least three times. Pakistan has been making sincere efforts to resolve the Kashmir issue through negotiations but it is India that is not willing to solve it. Pakistan and India should resolve all issues including Kashmir by negotiations because both countries are nuclear powers and war is not in favor of any country.”
Analyst Lt. Gen. (Retd.) Amjad Shoaib said: “India cannot disregard the voice of independence of Kashmiris by use of force. It is an important fact that Kashmiris want their right of self-determination. Some forces in the United Nations do not want to resolve the world conflicts as America is against the independence of Palestinians and is supporting Israel’s brutal attacks in the United Nations. It is naive thinking that the United Nations will play its role in the resolution of Kashmir issue. China always supports Kashmir issue in the United Nations and it will also play its role in future. We need to pay attention on our internal issues and strengthen our country, if we want to make influence on the Kashmir issue.”
