Kashmir issue to be raised at every forum, says PM


LONDON: Describing Kashmir as a ‘core issue’ between Pakistan and India, Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Tuesday urged the need for early resolution of the longstanding dispute between the hyphenated but hostile neighbours.

“Kashmir is a core issue, which must be resolved. And in my view the sooner the two countries [Pakistan and India] start working on it, the better it would be for them,” he said, while talking to journalists in London. The prime minister arrived in UK’s capital en route to the United States, where he will attend UN General Assembly’s 70th session.
