Pakistan wants peace with all its neighbours, including India: PM Shahbaz at UN

Pakistan wants peace with all its neighbors including India but lasting peace and stability in South Asia depends on a just and lasting solution to the Kashmir dispute, the Prime Minister said. Shahbaz Sharif Said here on Friday.

Speaking at the UN General Assembly, Shahbaz claimed that India’s “illegal and unilateral” action was taken to change the special status on August 5, 2019. Jammu And Kashmir further undermined the prospects for peace and fueled regional tensions.

“Pakistan needs a stable external environment. We want peace with all our neighbours, including India. Lasting peace and stability in South Asia, however, depends on a just and permanent settlement of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute,” he said.

“I think it is high time that India understands loud and clear the message that both the countries are armed to the teeth. War is not an option. This is not an option. Only peaceful dialogue can resolve these issues so that the world can be more peaceful in the times to come.”

India has repeatedly told Pakistan that Jammu and Kashmir “was, is and always will be” and will remain an integral part of the country. India has said that it wants normal neighborly relations with Pakistan in an environment free from terror, hostility and violence.

Relations between India and Pakistan broke down after the New Delhi Article 370 of the constitution was repealed.

India’s decision drew strong backlash from Pakistan, which downgraded diplomatic ties and expelled the Indian envoy.

Shahbaz said New Delhi has increased its military deployment in Jammu and Kashmir, making it the “most militarized region in the world”.

He said that the Pakistani people have always stood with the Kashmiris in complete solidarity and will continue to do so.

“I assured the world forum that we in Pakistan stand by our commitment to peace in South Asia. India must take appropriate steps to create an enabling environment for creative engagement,” he said.

“We are neighbors and we are forever. The choice is ours. Whether we live in peace or fight amongst ourselves. Since 1947, we have fought three wars. And the result has only increased poverty, poverty and unemployment on both sides. Is.

Shahbaz said both India and Pakistan should not waste their resources in trying to buy more ammunition and fuel tensions.

He said, “It is now up to us to resolve our differences, our problems or issues like our peaceful neighbors through peaceful dialogue and discussion and save our scarce resources to promote education and health and employment to millions of people. “
