Islamabad, Feb 09: Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Saturday said the Kashmir issue would continue to remain the “cornerstone of Pakistan’s foreign policy”.

Chairing a meeting here with the leaders from Pakistan-administered-Kashmir as a follow-up to Prime Minister Imran Khan’s address to the PaK’s Legislative Assembly in Muzaffarabad on February 05, Qureshi said that a lasting solution to the Kashmir dispute was essential for durable peace and stability in South Asia region.

“Kashmir would continue to remain the cornerstone of Pakistan’s foreign policy,” Qureshi was quoted as saying in a statement issued by the Pakistan’s Foreign Ministry (FO).

During the meeting, which was also attended by PaK leader Raja Farooq Haider Khan, the participants called for the complete removal of lockdown on communication and media in the Kashmir Valley.
