Solve JK dispute, key to peace in South Asia: Pak

Shah Mahmood Qureshi
Washington, Oct 21: Emphasising on the serenity in the South Asia region, Pakistan Foreign Minister, Shah Mehmood Qureshi urged US to intervene into the Kashmir dispute, which he claimed as the key to peace in the region.

"It is in the interest of lasting peace, stability and development of the region that the US works for the resolution of disputes in South Asia. This has to begin with justice for the Kashmiri people," stated Qureshi on Oct 21.

Speaking on the disputed situation in Jammu Kashmir, Qureshi said, "any person of conscience cannot ignore the use of brute force against defenceless Kashmiri youth."

The Pakistani foreign minister's comments have come despite US' repeated assertion that Kashmir is a bilateral issue between India and Pakistan and it has to be solved by the two countries.
