JI condemns change in Kashmir policy
9 January 2004
RAWALPINDI: Amir Jamaat-e-Islami, Rawalpindi, Muhammad Abbas Butt has criticised the foreign minister, Khurshid Mehmood Kasuri, for terming the UN resolutions old and obsolete and said it was reversal of the principled stand taken by Pakistan over the years. He said it seemed that the government had taken a U-turn on Kashmir issue because of the US government's pressure. Thousands of people had not sacrificed their lives for restoring commercial and cultural ties between the two countries, he said. Mr Butt urged the government to take the nation into confidence on the negotiations being held with the Indian government on Kashmir.
