KUALA LUMPUR: Malaysian Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohammad pressed for finding ways and means to sort out the Kashmir dispute. Talking to media at Parliament lobby here, the Malaysian premier said he had also raised the issue with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi when they met on the sidelines of the fifth meeting of the Eastern Economic Forum (EEF) in Russia.
He said according to United Nations Resolutions, Kashmir dispute must be resolved as it is Malaysia’s policy not to resort to violence but to resolve issues through negotiations, arbitration and the court of law. Mahathir said, despite a United Nations resolution on Jammu and Kashmir, the country has been invaded and occupied by Indian forces. India should work with Pakistan to resolve this problem as ignoring the United Nations would lead to other forms of disregard for the UN and the Rule of Law, Mahathir stressed.
