Kashmir settlement key to regional peace, Barrister tells US Congressman


Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) President Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry has said that resolution of the lingering Kashmir dispute was key to emergence of permanent peace and stability in South Asia.

He expressed these views in a meeting with American Congressman Thomas Suozzi in New York. Speaking on the occasion, he said that the United States should appoint a special representative on Kashmir and use its influence to resolve the Kashmir issue peacefully.

Terming the resolution of Kashmir problem as key to regional peace, he said that peace and stability in the South Asian region was inescapably linked to the settlement of the long pending dispute. President Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry thanked the American Congressman Thomas Swazi for reaching out to the flood-hit victims in Pakistan.

Barrister Chaudhary said that Swazi was the first to visit and meet the flood victims in Pakistan. He also appreciated the US administration for pledging more funds to help flood-ravaged people of Pakistan.—KMS
