Islamabad, September 18, 2020 (PPI-OT): Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has reiterated that Kashmir dispute cannot be solved by the use of force. In a statement in Islamabad on Friday, he said strategy of India, which has been using force against the Kashmiri people for the past seven decades, has totally failed.

The Foreign Minister said India tried to use force to gag the voice of the Kashmiris through draconian laws and restrictions. He said there is no precedent of the atrocities that have been committed in Indian illegally occupied Kashmir since August 5 last year.

He made it clear that India cannot succeed in resolving the dispute by these atrocities. Shah Mehmood Qureshi said the Kashmiri people bury their martyrs in Pakistan’s national flag, which proves that they have not accepted Indian steps. The Foreign Minister said Prime Minister Imran Khan will highlight the Kashmir issue in his upcoming address to the UN General Assembly.
