Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Thursday praised slain Hizb commander Burhan Wani by calling him a martyr and reiterated his condemnation of Indian “repression” in Kashmir, in remarks likely to re-ignite tensions between the nuclear-armed rivals, Dunya News reported.

Addressing a Kashmir conference held in Islamabad on Thursday, Sharif referred to 22-year-old Burhan Wani, whose killing in July sparked months of uprising, as a “martyr”, the report said.

In recent months, the two countries have exchanged fire on several occasions alongside the Line of Control, which divides Kashmir into Pakistani and Indian-ruled zones.
