Opposition Peoples Democratic Party on Sunday said it will continue to work with "progressive and democratic forces" in the country and in the region to facilitate peaceful resolution of the Kashmir issue.
"If there is one lesson that has evidently come through in last 20 years of turmoil is that the ultimate resolution of Kashmir lies in the political and democratic means and PDP will continue to work hand-in-hand with the progressive and democratic forces in the country to facilitate the peaceful resolution of the Kashmir issue," PDP patron Mufti Mohammad Sayeed said.
Addressing a series of public meetings in Bandipora and Baramulla assembly segments in Baramulla Lok Sabha constituency, Sayeed asked his party cadres to prepare for a bigger and important role in the Kashmir resolution process.
"PDP has not only put the Kashmir issue in a specific and rational political and economic context but has also laid strong foundations for its peaceful resolution in the emerging scenario of regional and global political realities," he said.
Sayeed, however, said any solution to the Kashmir issue would be focused around the party's self-rule agenda which not only addresses the internal and external dimensions of the problem, but its political and economic aspects as well.
