ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has underscored the need for a settlement of the decades-old, UN-recognized Kashmir dispute to pave the way for peace and development in South Asia.

This was stated by the Acting National Assembly Speaker, Murtaza Javed Abbasi while speaking at the global parliamentary summit at UN Headquarters in New York.

He said the Kashmiri people have waited too long for their just and inalienable right to self-determination. He said it is time to enable Kashmiris to exercise this right.

He also called on the international community to address the root-causes of terrorism, the menace Pakistan has been braving its onslaught for nearly two decades and is determined to eliminate it.
