SRINAGAR (AFP/Reuters) - Occupied Kashmirs top APHC leader urged visiting US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Saturday to push India and Pakistan to resolve their dispute over Kashmir. Kashmir is not a religious issue, it is not an issue of terrorism or extremism, it is a political dispute and the United States has a role to push both India and Pakistan to settle this political dispute, Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said in a statement. Mirwaiz is chairman of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference. His comments came as Mrs Clinton kicked off her Indian visit in Mumbai on Friday. Peace in South Asia cannot be achieved without a resolution of core issue of Kashmir, Mirwaiz said. Mrs Clinton denied Saturday that President Barack Obamas administration is pressuring India into seeking peace with Pakistan so the latter could focus entirely on beating an insurgency on its border with Afghanistan, a US priority. The US... is very supportive of steps that the governments take but we are not in any way involved in or promoting any particular position, she told reporters. Meanwhile, Kashmir police chief alleged on Saturday that a two-decade-old insurgency may not end unless Pakistan stops arming, training and sending freedom fighters to the disputed region. Infiltration from across (the border) is on, the training camps across for terrorists are still functional, and launching pads are on, Director General of Jammu and Kashmir Police Kuldeep Khuda told Reuters in an interview.
