Sharif encouraging separatists by writing to Asiya Andrabi, says Congress

ShakeelAhmad

New Delhi, Nov. 16 : Congress leader Shakeel Ahmed on Monday alleged Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of encouraging the Separatists in the valley following his letter to Asiya Andrabi appreciating her struggle in raising the Kashmir issue.

“This is a very shameful step taken by the Pakistan Prime Minister. It has been decided in the Simla agreement that any issues between both countries would be resolved bilaterally. Encouraging Separatists of our nation by a foreign prime minister is not appropriate,” Ahmed told ANI here.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has written a letter to Separatist leader Asiya Andrabi appreciating her struggle in raising the Kashmir issue and said that Pakistan will continue raising this issue on all ‘international’ platforms.

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.

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)
