Kashmir part of Pak`s national agenda: Gilani
Islamabad: Pakistan Prime Minister Yusuf Raza Gilani today said Kashmir issue is part of the national agenda of the country which "can never forget it."
Gilani also claimed that the world community has strated recognising Kashmir as a disputed territory due to the efforts by his government. "Kashmir is part of our national agenda and we can never forget it. The Kashmiri people live in our hearts. We inherited this love from our late leader (President Zulfiqar Ali) Bhutto," Gilani said in an address to the nation that focussed largely on domestic political issues.
"Today, the world community has for the first time begun recognising Kashmir as a disputed territory due to our efforts. It is a big success for us that the European parliament has agreed to a tripartite dialogue on the Kashmir issue. Kashmir was represented in this by the Prime Minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir," he said.
The European parliament accepted Pakistan`s view that the UN and the Organisation of the Islamic Conference should be made part of efforts to find a solution to the Kashmir
issue, he said.
The "prime minister" of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan, recently participated in a series of meetings on the Kashmir issue in Brussels. Reports
suggested that some European parliamentarians had accepted Khan’s proposal that the European Union should coordinate efforts to find a solution to the Kashmir issue.
