The PM reminded the honourable guest that his ancestors also attended the 23rd March 1940 Resolution and had vowed that Kashmir would form an integral part of the newly formed Pakistan.
The President AJK deplored the fact that despite the resolution passed on 19 July 1947, the British and Hindu regime of India conspired and ever since the Indian forces have kept the valley occupied under its illegal rule.
He thanked the masses of Pakistan for keeping up relentless support of their Kashmiri brethren during all crises that ever cropped up.

He reminded that late Z.A. Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto raised the Kashmir issue on all forums, and hoped for Indian reciprocity on the issue.
