According to media reports, Raheel Sharif while raising Kashmir issue said that this long-pending issue should be resolved in the light of UN resolutions.
Pakistan Chief of Army Staff who was addressing a passing-out parade held at Pakistan Military Academy in Kakul, said that the Kashmir issue which is key to peace and progress in the Sub-continent should be resolved in light of United Nations resolutions.
The Army Chief, in his address, said the people of Kashmir should decide their fate as the quest for peace is the nation’s greatest strength.
“Lasting peace in the region will only come about with a fair and just resolution of Kashmir issue in accordance with the will of Kashmiri people, as enshrined in the UN resolution,” said General Sharif.
