Giving another shock to India, Pakistan on Wednesday claimed to be a nation against terrorism.
While addressing the joint session of Parliament, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said “We are against war, we want peace and want to resolve all issues including Kashmir peacefully.”
Accusing India of making false allegation in Uri attack, Sharif said “Within hours of #UriAttack and without any investigation, India blamed Pakistan.”
During this address, he further said that Peace cannot be achieved without resolving Kashmir dispute.
Alleging conspiracy by India, he questioned the timing of Uri attack and said ” Uri incident took place exactly when I was about to address UNGA, the timing seems suspicious.”
He also told a joint session of Parliament that Pakistan has a firm commitment to continue its support to “Kashmiris for their legitimate” struggle.
Sharif said the UN resolutions on Kashmir are still on the agenda of the UN Security Council and the international community should take immediate steps for implementation on these resolutions, Radio Pakistan reported.
Kashmir is “burning continuously like a volcano and a convoy of Hurriyat is on its way to achieve the objectives”, Sharif said.
“Indian forces cannot suppress the struggle of Kashmiris for right to self-determination.”
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) announced that it would boycott Wednesday’s joint parliamentary session on the Kashmir issue, with party chairman Imran Khan saying his party would no longer endorse this Parliament.
“We fully back Kashmiris’ right to self-determination,” said Imran, adding there wasn’t much left for discussion in the joint session of Parliament.
He said that Nawaz Sharif had lost the moral authority to stay as the Prime Minister and that Tehreek-i-Insaf would no longer endorse this parliament.
