Kashmir Global

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s parliamentary panel on Kashmir led by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman will soon visit Belgium, Germany and Poland to lobby for support on the Kashmir issue.

Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani has approved visits to the three countries by a six-member delegation “to win their support on the Kashmir issue,” said a statement issued by his office on Monday.

Besides Rehman, the other members of the delegation are parliamentarians Muhammad Yousuf Talpur, Attiya Inayatullah, Ayaz Sadiq and Ramesh Lal.

A member of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference will also be part of the delegation, the statement said.

Noting that the European Union is gaining political and economic importance in world affairs, the statement said the delegation will “proactively highlight the Kashmir issue and Pakistan’s principled stance as supported historically by the UN resolution”.
