ISLAMABAD - Army Chief General Raheel Sharif yesterday said that Kashmir is an unfinished agenda of Pak-India partition and urged world powers to help resolve the longstanding Kashmir dispute for peace in South Asia.

“Kashmir is an unfinished agenda. World must help in resolving the Kashmir issue if it wants genuine peace in region,” the army chief said a day after India rejected Pakistan’s four-point peace roadmap.

Addressing a gathering at Royal United Services Institute in London, the army chief said Pakistan’s disputes with India resided with Kashmir, and the continuing ceasefire violations and indirect strategy against Pakistan was affecting the country, negatively.

According to information made available here through Director General of the Inter-Services Public Relations Lt Gen Asim Saleem Bajwa tweets, General Raheel said Pakistan's security environment is becoming conducive for upward economic trajectory and the military will continue its efforts towards bringing total security in the country.

Talking about the ongoing peace process in Afghanistan, the army chief said that Pakistan’s military and government supports enduring and permanent peace in Afghanistan.

"Anti-Pak propaganda must end," he added.

General Raheel urged all the stakeholders to beware of the detractors and spoilers who intend to sabotage the reconciliation process between the two countries.

He went on to say that Pakistan holds brotherly ties with Afghanistan. “There is dire need of border management and international cooperation to make regional peace possible.”

Earlier, General Raheel Sharif had said on Thursday that China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project would be a game-changer and usher in an era of prosperity in the region. “We will do everything to make it a success,” he said during interactions at the International Institute for Strategic Studies and House of Commons in London.

General Raheel has also made it clear that Pakistan was against proxies and would not allow them to operate from its soil, rejecting Afghan president’s claim in which he had linked the country with terrorists’ sanctuaries and support networks.
