AJK President Sardar Masood Khan says durable peace in South Asia is not possible without resolving Jammu and Kashmir dispute.

Addressing a seminar at the German Institute for Cultural Diplomacy in Berlin, he said that peace in South Asia requires engagement but India is blocking all channels for dialogue and communication on Kashmir.

Masood Khan said that to make the quest for peace in South Asia meaningful, India should end human rights violations in Kashmir, deescalate its frequent and hostile fire across the Line of Control, free political prisoners, and restore basic liberties and fundamental freedoms of the Kashmiri people.

He said that there is no terrorism in Kashmir and Kashmiris are unarmed and unaided militarily. He said that their only weapons are their aspirations and their words for freedom.
