Islamabad, Lt. Gen. (Retd.) Naeem Khalid Lodhi, Defense Expert stated that Certain countries want monopolization of nuclear weapons and want other nations to stop pursuing these ambitions. Pakistan has acquired the nuclear capability but major powers are not ready to let us enter into the nuclear club. Pakistan is a peace loving nation and a responsible nuclear power. The world knows that India and Israel are nuclear powers. India has been included into the club of nuclear materials supplies but Pakistan has not been given its membership. This is highly discriminatory on the part of major powers. Yesterday, the UN Secretary General offered his good offices for the resolution of Kashmir dispute which he termed a major issue in the relations between Pakistan and India. India is not willing to talk on Kashmir which is a major stumbling block. Pakistan cannot sit silent when India is committing human rights abuses in IIOJ&K.

 

Dr. Huma Baqai stated that Pakistan has effectively highlighted the Kashmir issue at all international forums. Kashmiris are under siege since the illegal action taken by India on August 5, 2019. Now, Kashmir has become the largest open prison on the face of the earth. The plight of Kashmiris was discussed at various international forums, including the British Parliament where the Labor MPs vociferously criticized the treatment meted out to Kashmiris. Global shaming of India over Kashmir has made this issue alive and burning in the world. We need to be more proactive in order to keep building pressure on New Delhi. Kashmir is a flashpoint between India, Pakistan, and China. The relation between China and India has further deteriorated recently. India-Pak bilateral relation has also become hostage to Kashmir crisis. With the coming of Biden administration in the US, not much change is expected. Biden is completely bogged down in the internal challenges of the US. Communication between Foreign Minister Qureshi and Secretary of State Antony Blinken touched various issues. Pakistan wants economic dimension of the Pak-US relation explored more. Report of EU DisinfoLab has truly exposed India’s real intentions towards its neighbors. Developments like these at international front and farmers’ protest like developments at home have forced India to retreat.

 

Lt. Gen. (Retd.) Raza Muhammad Khan (Defense Expert, was of the view The UN Chief rightly pointed out that resolution of Kashmir issue is key to peace and stability in South Asia. He also highlighted the fact that situation of Kashmir after the abrogation of Articles 370 and 35-A is deteriorating fast. Islamabad has highlighted the issue of Kashmir at all international forums, including the UN Security Council. Wrong decisions made by the Indian government also helped sensitize the world about plight of Kashmiris and enormity of the situation. It is anticipated that Biden administration will give attention to this critical issue in its pursuit of global peace.

 

 

Dr. Abdul Wajid, IR Expert: expressed that Kashmir issue has come into limelight after strong diplomatic efforts made by Pakistan. Kashmir issue was discussed at various European parliaments and the report of EU DisinfoLab has truly exposed India designs against regional neighbors, particularly Pakistan and China. Pakistan is a responsible nuclear power and its safety mechanism has been appreciated by international institutions. Pakistan was forced to become a nuclear state in response to Indian nuclear ambitions. The world needs to understand that Pakistan’s nuclear program is for peaceful purposes and has no designs to destabilize the region. This program is solely aimed at as a defensive capability against its arch enemy India
