Govt. to take note of Sharif’s statement: Jitendra Singh

New Delhi, Nov. 16 : Reacting to Pakistan’s Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif appreciating separatist leader Asiya Andrabi for her struggle in raising the Kashmir issue, Minister of State in Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) Jitendra Singh on Monday said that the foreign ministry will take note of it.

“The foreign ministry will take note of it. Our response to Pakistan is known to everyone,” Singh told the media here.

Sharif also said that Pakistan will continue raising this issue on all ‘international’ levels.

According to Daily Pakistan, Sharif said this while responding to a letter by Andrabi and asserted that Pakistan will continue its moral and political support to the people of Kashmir in their struggle for right to self-determination that has been acknowledged by the United Nations.

“Received your letter and I respect your feeling and appreciate you being a well wisher for the people of Pakistan. The issue of Kashmir is an international one and has been pending since 1947. Pakistan knows its responsibility about Kashmir issue and will continue to raise this issue on all international levels,” Sharif said in his letter addressed to the Separatist leader.

He also accused India of going back on its promise to the international community that Kashmir would be given the right to choose its political future through the exercise of self determination and that this was a betrayal, the daily reports. (ANI)
