Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Monday said that peace will prevail in the sub-continent once Kashmir issue is settled.
The premier who is on a two day visit to Iran also brought attention to the injustice being done to the people of Palestine and the people of Kashmir. Imran said that that a United Nations resolution “clearly states that the people of Kashmir will be allowed to decide their own destiny”. Yet, he regretted, Indian government forces have been trying to oppress the people of Kashmir for the past 30 years.
“I feel very strongly that the only way is not a military resolution — it is not through force, but through dialogue and a political settlement,” the premier was quoted as saying by Dawn.
He added that the whole subcontinent can move forward once Kashmir was settled. “Justice will bring peace,” the premier reiterated.
The premier noted that cooperation between the two countries and ways to improve trade had been also discussed.
Earlier, Khan met Iranian President Hassan Rouhani at the Presidential Palace in Tehran.
During their meeting, Khan discussed the entire spectrum of bilateral relations and ways to further ties in diverse fields with President Rouhani.
