While categorically refuting a news report attributed to the AJK President Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhary, aired by a section of electronic and social media, a spokesman of the AJK president on Friday made it clear that Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhary’s remarks were quoted out of context.

“The news telecast on electronic besides appearing on social media, is baseless and there is no truth in any such thing being attributed to the President”, the president’s spokesman said, adding that no Kashmiri can think about converting LOC into a permanent bor der. “Kashmir issue is a matter of life and death for the millions of Kashmiris, no conscious Kashmiri can accept any such solution that would lead to further fragmentation of the state”.

He lamented that the President’s remarks were quoted out of context. “What he (president) actually wanted to convey was that a proposal regarding the crossing of the LoC collectively has been under consideration so as to develop pressure on India and divert world attention towards the simmering situation in the Indian occupied Kashmir”, the spokesman said adding that division of Kashmir would be treason with Kashmiris.

He made it clear that the news being attributed to the AJK president Barrister Sultan Mehmood Chaudhary was absolutely baseless. “There is no truth in any such thing being attributed to the President of the State of Azad Jammu and Kashmir”, He added.
