    MUZAFFARABAD, Dec 3: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif expressed his resolve here on Tuesday for early settlement of the Kashmir issue in accordance with UN resolutions and aspirations of the Kashmiris, warning that failure to resolve the dispute in a timely manner could lead to war.

    “Kashmir is a flashpoint and can trigger a fourth war between the two nuclear powers at anytime,†he said in his brief address to the budget session of the Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Council.

    The council, which is a product of AJK’s Interim Constitution Act of 1974, has its secretariat in Islamabad. It was for the first time its session was held in Muzaffarabad, where its Rs14.98 billion budget for the current fiscal year was approved.

    AJK President Sardar Yaqoob Khan, Prime Minister Chaudhry Abdul Majeed, federal Minister for Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan Affairs Birjees Tahir, Minister of State for Commerce Khurram Dastgir Khan, MNAs Tariq Fazal and Marvi Memon and five of the six elected AJK Council members attended the meeting.

    Prime Minister Sharif said he had been vigorously highlighting the issue at the global level, and lately had presented the just stand of Kashmiri people at all international forums, including the UN General Assembly.

    “Kashmir also remained under focus during my meeting with President Barack Obama,†he said.

    He said Pakistan did not want to indulge in an arms race and would implement the ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC).

    Stating that AJK’s development and prosperity was his priority, he also announced a number of ambitious plans to fulfil his commitment.

    “I have a heartfelt attachment with Kashmir… It’s as much important for me as other parts of the country and that’s why I consider its development and prosperity my national duty.â€

    He said the AJK capital would be linked with Rawalpindi and Islamabad through a modern railway system. It would also be connected with Mirpur, Gilgit-Baltistan and major cities of Pakistan through a network of highways for revival of infrastructure and promotion of tourism in the region.

    He said a state of the art road from Muzaffarabad to Taobutt in Neelum valley and a tunnel in Leepa valley to keep it connected with the rest of the area throughout the year would also be constructed.

    Airports of international standard would be built in Muzaffarabad and Rawalakot, he said.

    Underlining the need of launching hydroelectric projects, the prime minister said it would not only provide cheap electricity but also reduce poverty and unemployment.

    “I wish the AJK government takes concrete steps for development of this region and we will extend them fullest cooperation,†he said.

    However, he laid emphasis on transparency and good governance in AJK, saying his government was committed to eradicating corruption and those who would go against it would be taken to task.

    The prime minister also held a meeting with an eight-member delegation of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference (APHC), led by Syed Yousuf Nasim.

    He paid tribute to the Kashmiris for their sacrifices and struggle to achieve the right of self-determination and said: “Please convey my message to every Kashmiri that the government and people of Pakistan are with them in their just cause.â€

    Brilliant strategy by NS to keep Kashmir issue in the foray in International levels. I think he is desperate to bug out.

    Point to note is He has been ratching up the Kashmir issue more often than not in the World arena as if Pak is willing to make peace by they will keep exporting terrorists and infiltrators. Typical NS strategy. Very interesting.

    I had posted long back on the thread about elections in Pakistan that NS will be bad for India and we can expect a war if he bcoms the PM. He is probably playing the same game as the one played Rani Jindan. get the army to fight a strong opponant so that they lose and bcom weak to dictate anything to NS.

    Kashmir a flashpoint for another India-Pak war, Nawaz Sharif says

    Kashmir is a flashpoint that can trigger a fourth war between Pakistan and India anytime, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has said, seeking an early settlement of the issue.

    He also said he had a dream of seeing Indian Kashmir free and hoped to see it happen during his lifetime.

    “Kashmir is a flashpoint and can trigger a fourth war between the two nuclear powers at anytime,” he was quoted as saying by the Dawn daily in his brief address to the budget session of the ‘Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) Council’ in Pak-occupied Kashmir yesterday.

    The press release issued by his office last night did not carry the above statement.

    The statement had however quoted Sharif as saying that the Kashmir issue should be settled according to the aspirations of the people and theUN resolutions as peace in the region was not possible without it.

    “The Prime Minister said that he had a dream of seeing held-Kashmir free from the Indian occupation and desired that this dream could turn into reality during his lifetime,” the statement said.

    About Indo-Pak relations, the Prime Minister categorically reiterated that it was India which indulged in the arms race, it said.

    “We were drawn into arms race by India,” he said. “If we had a choice, we could have diverted these expenditures to the social sector uplift and eradication of poverty,” he emphasised.

    Sharif also expressed his satisfaction over the improvement of situation on the Line of Control (LoC).

    and the ability to dream and make statements on dreams is recently found in Pakistani Prime Minister.. the question is.. does it make his one of the visionary or one who is moon-touched?
