Kashmir to Stay Base of Pak’s foreign policy: Shah Mahmood Qureshi

Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Saturday reported the Kashmir problem would continue to stay the”basis of Pakistan’s foreign policy”.

Chairing a meeting here with all the leaders out of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir as a followup to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s speech to the PoK’s Legislative Meeting in Muzaffarabad on February 5, Qureshi stated a lasting solution to the Kashmir dispute was crucial for durable peace and stability in South Asia area.

“Kashmir would continue to remain the cornerstone of Pakistan’s foreign policy,” Qureshi was quoted as saying in a statement issued from Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry (FO).

Throughout the assembly, which was attended by PoK leader Raja Farooq Haider Khan, the participants called for the total elimination of lockdown on media and communication from the Kashmir valley.

Article 370 of the Constitution, which gives special status to Jammu and Kashmir, was abrogated on August 5, 2019. India has told the global community that its movement to scrap Article 370 has been an internal thing and also has advised Pakistan to take the facts.
