Editorial viewpoint

This is like ‘the pot calling the kettle black’

Pakistan Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif

Pakistan’s Prime Minister said that India’s activities are creating a danger to the peace and stability of the region. I have informed Erdogan about these activities. Pakistan always works to maintain peace in the area. If the Kashmir issue is solved according to the United Nations resolution and the wishes of the Kashmiri people only then it be possible to have permanent peace in the South Asia region.

Editorial Comment

India should firmly tell Erdogan that the Kashmir issue is India’s internal issue. Erdogan need not opine on how and who should solve it.
