“Unanimously demanded the revival of the ceasefire on the Line of Control”
Islamabad, Aug 24: The participants of the recently held Kashmir Conference in Dubai have strongly and categorically denied the reports published in a section of the media which accused the participants from Kashmir of accepting Indian stance on the issue.
In a joint press statement issued in Islamabad on Thursday the participants of the Dubai Kashmir moot including Shah Ghulam Qadir, Speaker Azad Jammu Kashmir Legislative Assembly and Secretary General Pakistan Muslim League (N), AJK, Ch. Lateef Akber, President Pakistan Peoples Party AJK, Sardar Sagheer Ahmed Chughtai Member AJK Legislative Assembly and central leader of Muslim Conference, Abdul Rasheed Turabi, ex Amir AJK Jamaat e Islami and member Legislative Assembly, Faiz Ahmed Naqshbandi Convenor All Parties Hurriyat Conference, Sardar Amjad Yousaf, Executive Director Kashmir Institute of International Relations (KIIR) and Ershad Mahmud Convener Kashmir Initiative Group (KIG) said that the participants / delegates of Dubai Moot had declared Kashmir a political issue required to be settled. “The Participants of the conference were of the unanimous view that the settlement of Kashmir issue is possible only through dialogue”, they said in the statement.
The Participants of the Conference also unanimously demanded the revival of the ceasefire on the Line of Control in order to reduce the miseries of the Kashmiris.
The participants of the conference made it clear in the joint statement that no any joint communiqué of the conference was released at the conclusion of the moot, which is being made the base and source for issuing the statements of criticism without any justification and this act of the critics is absolutely based on ill intention, they remarked.
The Participants of the Kashmir conference further stated that they have trust in dialogue and engagement on Kashmir provided Kashmiris are a part of every such exercise. They added that they will always support and vouch for an internal dialogue at each stage among Kashmiris and those sitting in cozy offices here and abroad who have practically done nothing for Kashmir can’t deter them from their commitment towards dialogue, engagement, and people-centric resolution of Kashmir conflict.
