He said Kashmir was the basic unit of Pakistan, and the people of Occupied Jammu and Kashmir were fighting a war for the completion of Pakistan.
“I salute the Kashmiri Hurriyat leadership and people for their resilience and courageous struggle in the face of Indian fascism and state terrorism”, he said, adding the day was not far when the people of occupied Kashmir would achieve their cherished goal of freedom.
He said India should shun its traditional intransigence and come to the negotiation table to resolve the lingering Kashmir dispute peacefully in line with the United Nations resolutions.”Negotiations with India cannot proceed without giving the right to self-determination to the people of Jammu and Kashmir”, he added.
