OSLO (Agencies) The Norwegian Minister of Foreign Affairs Jonas Gahr Store has maintained that the current uprising in Kashmir is indigenous and the protesting youngsters should not be met with bullets. International standards on human rights should be upheld by all including India. Jones concluding the maiden debate on Kashmir conflict in the Norwegian parliament informed that his government was encouraging Indian and Pakistan to solve the conflict through peaceful means as violence was no solution to their problems, reported Kashmir Media Service on Friday. Gahr further said that Norway is constantly keeping an eye on the unfolding events in Kashmir, particularly through its embassies in New Dehli and Islamabad. He said the Norwegian embassy in New Dehli has raised the issue of Kashmir with the Indian government at all levels. He recalled that he had personally talked about Kashmir during his visits to the region. He reminded the House that Norwegian embassy participated in a joint Nordic delegation to Indian-held Kashmir in April this year where they had taken up human rights and political situation with the representatives of the state government. Chairman of Norwegian Parliamentary Kashmir Committee Knut Arild Hareide said that peace in Afghanistan is linked to the settlement of Kashmir issue. She added that unsolved Kashmir conflict was hampering international communitys efforts to curb terrorism worldwide. Conservative Partys Member Parliament Peter Skovholt Gitmark also emphasised that people of Kashmir must be included in the settlement process. He further said that a negotiated solution between Pakistan and India must also reflect the wishes of the local people. Others who participated in the debate included Svein Roald Hansen, MP for the Labour Party, Tone Liljeroth, MP for the Progress Party, MP Peter N.Myhre of the Norwegian Progress Party and Akhtar Chaudhry of the Socialist Left Party.
