Prime Minister Yousuf Raza Gilani on Saturday said the international community had accepted Pakistan's stand on the Kashmir issue and people would soon hear "good news" in this regard.
Gilani made the remarks while addressing a meeting after a briefing on the Kashmir issue by the "prime minister" of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, Atique Ahmad Khan, on his return to the country after a visit to Brussels.
He did not say what the "good news" would be.
Pakistan is very concerned about the solution of the Kashmir issue and it will never step back from its principles, he said.
Khan told Gilani that it was a great achievement for the Pakistan government that the parliament of the European Union had accepted the Kashmir issue as an international matter and initiated a hearing.
He claimed the UN, EU and the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC) had included the issue in their official documents by adopting a common mechanism.
He further claimed it was a great success for Pakistan's foreign policy that the EU parliament's standing committee on Kashmir had restarted its work on the issue.
