India-Pakistan peace linked to Kashmir settlement: army chief


LONDON: Terming the Kashmir issue an unfinished agenda of partition of the Subcontinent, Army Chief Gen Raheel Sharif said on Friday that the world community must come forward to help resolve the longstanding issue if it wants genuine peace in the region.

Speaking at the Royal United Services Institute, an independent think tank on defence and security, he said that Indian intransigence, violations of the Line of Control and indirect strategy against Pakistan were adversely affecting the region.
