Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif Statement On Kashmir And Peace With India At UNGA

New Delhi: There is something more important than survival for Pakistan, which has become ‘pauperized’ due to unprecedented floods… the issue of Kashmir. The economic situation is in turmoil, hands have to be spread in front of other countries, even friends do not pick up the phone… yet what does Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif talk to the biggest global forum… of Kashmir. Sharif’s address to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) is an example of Pakistan’s two-sidedness. On one hand he talks of peace with India, the next moment he stirs up the rage of Kashmir. Sharif said before the UNGA that ‘we want peace with all our neighbors including India. However, lasting peace and stability in South Asia depends on an equitable and permanent settlement of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute. A few minutes before this, Sharif was “begging” India to create a “conducive environment” for peace.

I think the time has come for India to understand the message that both the countries are connected to each other. War is not an option, only peaceful dialogue can resolve the issues so that the world becomes more peaceful in times to come.

‘We are neighbors… always will be…’
“India must take credible steps to create a conducive environment for constructive engagement,” Sharif told the UN General Assembly forum on Saturday. We are neighbors and are forever, the choice is ours whether to live in peace or fight with each other. He said that ‘since 1947 we have fought 3 wars and as a result only misery, poverty and unemployment have increased on both sides. Now it is up to us to resolve our differences, our problems and our issues through peaceful dialogue and discussion.

India needs to reform the Security Council
34 countries including India issued a joint statement calling for reforms of the United Nations Security Council. The Foreign Ministry said that the joint statement said that the United Nations needs urgent and comprehensive reform. It has been emphasized that the Council should reflect the aspirations and visions of the developing world, constituting the majority of the United Nations Charter.
