Sardar Yaqoob said that during his meetings in Karachi with businessmen of various sectors of economy, he had a feeling that the community here was keen to establish trade ties with Kashmiri counterparts. It be earthquake or any other issue, the people of Karachi have always played an important role to support Kashmiris, he said. Referring to his views on trade ties with India, he said that it was a welcome sign to promote regional trade with neighbouring countries and that his government has no objection over the status of MFN status to India by the Federal Cabinet. He said that Kashmiris were peace loving people and there was no law and order problem in AJK. To a proposal of KCCI President Abrar Ahmed, the AJK president said that a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) will also be materialised between KCCI and AJK Chamber of Commerce and Industry during the proposed visit of KCCI delegation to Muzaffarabad.
