Earlier today, during an interview with CNN, Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor said that the Kashmir issue is a flashpoint in the region.
He said that Pakistan had highlighted the Kashmir issue and Indian state atrocities at the international media. “The Kashmir issue should be resolved according to the resolutions of the United Nations,” he said.
He said that Pak-India tension had reduced, but the danger is not over yet. “India should bring its house in order instead of leveling allegations against others,” he added.
The DG ISPR asked India to find out a solution to its problems instead of making accusations. “Now the ball is in the court of India. It should decide on whether to increase tension or reduce it,” he observed.
He said that India will have to face the reaction if it will use the pellet gun and rape to suppress the Kashmir issue. “I am not saying this. But a UNHCR report has mentioned these atrocities,” he said.
DG ISPR Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor was of the view that tension is not better for peace in the region. “Pakistan displayed goodwill gesture by releasing the Indian pilot. Now India should positively respond for regional peace,” he said.
He said that India should tell whether it wants peace in the region or want to continue the agenda of instability.
