President Dr Arif Alvi on Friday said peaceful resolution of Kashmir was important for ensuring peace in the Indian subcontinent. “For peace in the subcontinent, peaceful resolution of Kashmir is a must. There is no alternate,” the President said in his tweet.

President Alvi also shared the web link of an article ‘The Kashmir challenge’ by Ashraf Jahangir Qazi, the former ambassador to the US, India and China and head of UN missions in Iraq and Sudan, that published in a national daily on Friday.

An excerpt of the article said' “The 21st century has one message for nuclear-armed India and Pakistan: cooperate or perish. The seas are rising. Land, water and jobs will disappear.Populations cannot cope. Stresses of every kind are increasing. Reason and moderation are giving way to atavistic passions, insane hatred and self-destructive machismo. Cooperating to reverse this fatal trend will provide a context for a Kashmir settlement.”
