The veteran Hurriyet leader Syed Ali Gilani says Kashmir dispute is endangering peace in South Asia.

Syed Ali Gilani in a statement in Srinagar said issues are resolved through talks, but added that "unless India accepts Kashmir as a dispute and stops terming the so-called elections in the territory as a referendum, no positive progress can be made.

He said the biggest hindrance to the resolution of this issue is the stubborn approach of India which, instead of adhering to the international principles and covenants, is suppressing the dispute through its military might.

He urged Pakistan not to ask for talks with India but focus on the United Nations resolutions as a solution to the Kashmir dispute.

The veteran leader terming pro-India parties as open enemies of people, said that these parties advocate Pak-India talks just to mislead the masses.
