Kashmir issue has to be settled, says Pak PM Imran Khan


The Kashmir issue “has to be settled” and “cannot keep boiling like it is” as its resolution and peace with India will be “tremendous” for the region, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has said.

Khan made the remarks in an interview with the BBC, during which he also said the two neighbours could only settle their differences through dialogue. His comments came as Indians began voting in a general election, weeks after a suicide attack in Kashmir by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed had triggered tensions.

Asked by the BBC what message he wanted to send to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and India, Khan said the Kashmir issue “has to be settled” and “cannot keep boiling like it is”.

“The number one tasks of the two governments is how are we going to reduce poverty and the way we reduce poverty is by settling our differences through dialogue and there is only one difference, which is Kashmir,” he said. Read More
