Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Wednesday said unprovoked Indian firing along the Line of Control (LoC) is not only aggression against Kashmiris but also amounts to targeting the conscience of the global community.
Inaugurating a newly constructed sports stadium in Bagh, Azad Kashmir, as part of the developmental projects for the districts affected by earthquakes, the premier said: “Pakistan is continuously keeping the international community abreast of these provocations, ceasefire violations and trampling of human rights of Kashmiris by Indian troops.”
Sharif said “Pakistan would continue to raise a voice for our Kashmiri brethren till they realise their right of self-determination.”
“Firing across the LoC and the Working Boundary has increased in recent days, posing threats not only to innocent people but also to regional peace and security.”
The premier said “Pakistan is drawing attention of the United Nations and the international community towards these violations and threats to regional peace.”
He said Pakistan is playing a very important role in the global war against terrorism, adding that Pakistan was conducting a successful operation against terrorism with its achievements being acknowledged by the entire world.
In a message to the global community, Sharif said the people of Pakistan and their armed forces are fully resolved to eliminating terrorism. “We will not forgive those supporting terrorists and their organisations.”
“Elimination of terrorism will be Pakistan’s gift to the international community,” said the premier.
Earlier, the prime minister inaugurated different development projects at a ceremony in Bagh.
Forty three development projects have been completed at a cost of Rs 2.7 billion for the earthquake affected districts of Azad Kashmir including Muzaffarabad, Bagh and Poonch.
The PM said that the government wants to see Azad Kashmir prosper. The nation can never forget the innocent lives lost to Indian shelling, he added. The premier reassured Kashmiris of Pakistan’s support.
While talking about the operation in Karachi, he said that the crime rate in Sindh’s metropolitan has decreased significantly.
