Jammu and Kashmir President Sardar Masood Khan says Kashmir is an international dispute that needs to be addressed under relevant UN resolution.
Talking to AJK Minister for Law and Parliamentary Affairs Chaudhry Javed Iqbal, who called on him in Muzaffarabad today (Thursday), Masood Khan said India is maneuvering to divert world attention from the brutalities perpetrated by its occupation forces.
He said that there is no military answer to Jammu and Kashmir conflict and emphasized that negotiation is a viable way to find a peaceful solution to restore peace in the region.
Asking New Delhi to sit across the table with Pakistan and genuine representatives of Kashmiri people to discuss the core issue, Masood Khan said resorting to state terrorism to stifle the voice of Kashmiris and political manipulation to repeal Article 35- A and Article 370 will in no way help India to get out of the quagmire of her own making in Kashmir.
Speaking on the occasion, Minister for Law, Chaudhry Javed Iqbal said abolition of Article 35 from Indian constitution and change in Kashmir's demography would be serious violation of International law.
