ISLAMABAD- Information Minister Senator Pervaiz Rashid today said that the government continues to pursue historical and principled stand on Kashmir issue.

Talking to a delegation of journalists from Bagh, Azad Kashmir in Islamabad, he said Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif effectively presented Pakistan's stance on the issue at the recent United Nations General Assembly session. The Minister said the government believes the issue should be resolved in accordance with the UN resolutions and as par aspirations of the Kashmiri people. He said India would gain nothing by firing shells on unarmed civilians across the Line of Control (LoC) rather it is losing its own credibility in the comity of nations.
