US can play crucial role to de-escalate Indo-Pak tension, K-issue resolution: Sehrai


Srinagar, Feb 28: Reacting to US president Donald Trump’s statement, Tehreek-e-Hurriyat Chairman Mohammad Ashraf Sehrai on Thursday said that the US can play a very critical role in not only to de-escalate confrontation between India and Pakistan, but in resolving Kashmir issue.

The spokesman quoting Sehrai said that the world, including the US, was well aware of the danger the dispute posed to world peace and to the stability in the region. We wish to see progress towards the resolution of the Kashmir dispute, which is the biggest hurdle in the way of peace and development in the region.


He said that Kashmir stands as a potential nuclear flashpoint between the two countries which will consume the lives of millions of people in an instant. Allowing this dangerous political conflict to fester not only endangers the security of the people of the entire region but also undermines their future by compromising on their interest and well-being.

How long will the two hold the prosperity and security of their people and the region hostage to their hostility and rivalry? If they reject talk show will they engage, do they have an alternative? Sehrai Asked.

Sehrai appealed leadership in India and Pakistan to change course and move away forward peacefully. They have to take difficult decisions which are urgently needed to shape a better course for the future generations of India and Pakistan and the tormented people of Jammu and Kashmir.
