4 Point Proposal Only Option for Peace in the Region - PM
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said on Saturday his four-point peace roadmap is the only way forward.
“There is no other solution, we have given a proposal for peace in the region,” PM Nawaz said while addressing the media in London.
Responding to a question regarding India rebuffing his peace roadmap with a ‘one-point’ peace proposal of its own, the premier said, “India will have to follow the peace plan sooner or later and the sooner they do the better it will be.”
“India will not gain anything by pointing fingers at Pakistan,” he added. “Animosity has only impeded the development process.”
Further, the premier said the proxy war against Pakistan from across the border should come to an end.
Referring to three dossiers handed over to the UN secretary general on Friday containing evidence of India’s involvement in fomenting terrorism and instability in their country, PM Nawaz said, “All evidence regarding the involvement of India’s premier spy agency, RAW, in terrorist activities in Pakistan have been submitted.”
Underscoring the urgency of resolving the decades-old dispute over the Himalayan state of Kashmir, PM Nawaz on Wednesday proposed to India a four-point peace initiative centred around the demilitarization of Kashmir.
Addressing the world leaders at the 70th anniversary session of the 193-member UN General Assembly, the prime minister proposed Pakistan and India formalise and respect the 2003 understanding for a complete ceasefire on the Line of Control (LoC) in Kashmir to be monitored by an expanded UN Military Observers Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP).
However, responding to his peace plan India proposed its own and called on Pakistan to ‘give up support for terrorism’.
“Yesterday the prime minister of Pakistan proposed a four-point peace initiative. We don’t need four points, we need just one – give up terrorism and let us sit down and talk,” India’s Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said in her speech before the UN General Assembly.
