Ahsan urges US to use influence to resolve decades-old Kashmir dispute

NEW YORK: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal says civilian and military leaders are working hand-in-hand for the country’s advancement in all spheres.

Addressing office-bearers and workers of Pakistan Muslim League-N in New York, he stressed for national unity to steer country out of today’s challenges.

The Interior Minister said there is no rift between the national institutions and thus no threat to democracy in the country.

The Minister said that remarkable progress had been made by Pakistan in the macroeconomic sector through prudent fiscal policies which have resulted in high economic growth rate.

He said the security situation has improved considerably after successful military operations in the country.

The Minister said relations between Pakistan and the United States are warming up.

He said both the countries will have detailed discussions on all relevant issues during US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s visit to Islamabad later this month.

In reply to a query, he said CPEC does not pose any threat to any one and all countries could derive benefits from this mega project.

Interior Minister urged the United States to use its influence and resolve the decades-old Kashmir dispute where people are suffering the worst atrocities at the hands of Indian occupation forces.
