While discussing different dimensions of the Kashmir dispute with special reference to the ongoing situation in the Indian held territory of Jammu and Kashmir both the leaders resolved that the political leadership of AJK would continue its all out support to Kashmir cause to seek a solution to the lingering dispute on the basis of universally accepted principle of right to self-determination.

Regarding the messy situation in the held territory both leaders agreed that in view of the Kashmir situation, there should be consultative sessions between the political leadership of Azad Kashmir and the leadership of the Hurriyat Conference on regular basis to devise a joint mechanism to sensitize international community about the early resolution of Kashmir dispute.

On the occasion, Sardar Atique Ahmad Khan said that his party (Muslim Conference) is ready for unconditional cooperation with the PTI for the sake of freedom movement of Kashmir. Raja Musadiq Khan also appreciated the Muslim Conference and its leadership for waging a historic struggle for the rights of the people of the state.

He said that PTI has been consulting the leadership of other parties with a view to build a national consensus on the Kashmiris’ inalienable right the right to self determination and the unity of Kashmir. “It is high time that all political parties should rise the occasion and discharge their obligations vis-à-vis the freedom of the Indian occupied Kashmir”, Khan said adding that Prime Minister Imran Khan has highlighted the self-determination of Kashmiris on global level. “Since the pro-freedom political leadership in the occupied Kashmir is languishing in jails and detention centers it is now the sole responsibility of the Kashmiri leadership over here to hold the flag of freedom high and move forward”, the PTI leader said.
