ISLAMABAD       -    Senator Mushahid Hussain Sayed on Monday called for resolution of Palestine and Kashmir issues in accordance with the aspirations of the people and the resolutions of the United Nations (UN). “Kashmir and Palestine issues are two important issues in the world at the moment and we want these issues to be resolved in accordance with the aspirations of the people and the resolutions of the United Nations (UN)”, he said while speaking at a seminar held here. The seminar titled “Piecing peace together for a shared future for humanity” was organised by the Parliamentary Kashmir Committee in collaboration with Islamabad Institute of Conflict Resolution (IICR) to observe International Peace Day. Speaking on the occasion, Mushahid Hussain said Pakistan had always wanted peace in the world and peaceful relation with all the neighboring countries.

He was of the view that the incident of August 5 last year had proved to be a turning point. After Israel, India had become the second such country in the world to use the weapon of illegal occupation through the military, he bemoaned.

He said the Indian forces were continuously violating ceasefire along the Line of Control (LoC) which was not acceptable at all. The Pulwama incident is in front of the world in response to which Pakistan shot down the Indian plane. 

Mushahid Hussain said India was currently facing border tensions with all its neighboring countries. “India’s tensions with Nepal, Pakistan and China continue while tensions with China over Ladakh are also going on,” he said.
