Our Staff reporter MIRPUR (AJK) - Former AJK Prime Minister Sardar Attique Ahmed Khan Sunday vehemently opposed granting the MFN (Most Favourite Nation) status to India. Addressing news conference at Kashmir Press Club here, Attique, also Member AJK Legislative Assembly and President of All Jammu & Kashmir Muslim Conference, said that that Kashmir problem and Water-like major issues between India and Pakistan must have to be resolved before thinking about encouraging the move of giving MFN status to New Delhi. Besides, the social, political and economic stability shall have to be brought about in Pakistan before endorsing such move of the grant of MFN status to India, he emphatically said. Attique continued that since India was seeking the status quo of the Jammu & Kashmir state with ulterior motives to deprive the people of the state of their due right to self-determination. He declared that such Indian move would not be acceptable at any cost since it was not the alternative to the Kashmiris right to self-determination. Referring to the fact-finding report of the interlocutors who, recently concluded their detailed visit to occupied Jammu & Kashmir to inquire about the view point of the masses about the fate of the internationally-acknowledged disputed Himalayan state of Jammu & Kashmir, the former AJK PM said that the report of the interlocutors could neither be accepted nor be turned down. This report could be described as a step forward to the resolution of the Kashmir problem, he added. About policy of reconciliation with PPP, he said that his party would accept the reconciliation in all the areas of larger national interests. He declared that primarily, the reconciliation between the PPP and Muslim Conference should benefit the Kashmir freedom movement. Attique said that ongoing move for reaching to long-lasting reconciliation between PPP and Muslim Conference was not meant for the sake of getting any share in the newly-elected peoples government in AJK. We have ended all electoral rifts for the sake of the stability of democracy and democratic norms in AJK. Attique maintained that the PPP intended to given MFN status to India. But the same (MFN status) should not be encouraged to be granted by Pakistan unless New Delhi sincerely moved to the resolution of Kashmir dispute without further loss of time, he urged. The MC President said that Pakistans pressure on India for early resolution of the long-standing issues especially Kashmir, should not be lesser at any cost.
