Azad Jammu and Kashmir President Barrister Sultan Mahmood Chaudhry, stressing the need for early resolution of Kashmir dispute Thursday said that the unsettled dispute posed a threat to peace and stability in South Asia.

While addressing a seminar organized by the Pakistan Embassy in Washington, DC on Thursday, he said that India had illegally occupied the territory Jammu and Kashmir by landing its troops in Srinagar soon after foundation of the Azad Kashmir government was laid on October 24, 1947 under the leadership of Ghazi Millat Sardar Muhammad Ibrahim Khan, AJK President office said here Thursday evening.

Terming Indian invasion of Kashmir as illegal, he said that Kashmiris had never accepted Indian control over the territory.

Terming unresolved Kashmir as the biggest threat to peace and stability in the region, the president urged the international community to play its role to settle the lingering dispute that had now assumed dangerous proportions.—INP
