Hurriyat Welcomes Sharif's Move To Raise Kashmir Issue At UNGA
27 September 2014
: Both factions of Hurriyat Conference on Saturday welcomed Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif's statement on Kashmir in his speech in the United Nations' General Assembly. Hardline Hurriyat Conference Chairman Syed Ali Geelani said the Pakistan Prime Minister not only repeated the known stand of his country with regard to the Kashmir issue but also appealed to the world community to play its role in resolving the issue. Moderate Hurriyat Conference chairman Mirwaiz Umar Farooq said the Centre should start a result-oriented dialogue with Pakistan and Kashmiri leadership. Mirwaiz said the UN resolutions provide legal and historical basis to solve Kashmir issue. 'Kashmir issue could be solved either by implementing UN resolutions or through meaningful dialogue between the main stakeholders in the Kashmir issue, India and Pakistan,' he added.
