Despite cross-border tensions rising to a new high following Uri attacks and India’s surgical strikes inside the LoC, there has been no let-up in Pakistan’s support to the Kashmir issue. In fact, Pakistan’s role in promoting terrorism in India is hardly a secret anymore despite repeated denial by India’s neighbouring country.
He said India will be “mistaken” if it equates the “freedom struggle” of Kashmiri people with terrorism.
Earlier he had alleged that atrocities in Kashmir had touched extremes and that Pakistan will continue to extend moral, diplomatic and political support to Kashmiris.
Earlier, while addressing the joint special session of Pakistani Parliament, Sharif denied any involvement of Pakistan in the Uri attack in Jammu and Kashmir that claimed lives of 19 Indian soldiers.
He mentioned that his Army is ready for any challenges and will take necessary actions in the situation of crisis.
After blaming Pakistan for the September 19 Uri attack, India this month initiated a “diplomatic drive to isolate” Pakistan by opting out of the Saarc summit that was to be held in Islamabad in November.
