Srinagar, July 24 (KMS): In occupied Kashmir, Jammu and Kashmir Liberation Front has welcomed US President Donald Trump’s call for resolution of Kashmir dispute and his willingness to mediate between the stakeholders, terming it a heartening breakthrough.

JKLF Chief Spokesman Muhammad Rafiq Dar in a statement issued in Srinagar said, Kashmiris living across the globe not only welcome his statement but also thank President Trump for this bold initiative. The JKLF said the statement is a reflection of the reality of Jammu and Kashmir being a conflict zone that deserves an early resolution.

Rafiq Dar said that despite every tactics and tyrannical approach, India has failed to undo this internationally recognised and unresolved issue and once again it has been proved beyond doubt that it is only the peaceful resolution of this vexed problem that can ensure a lasting peace, stability and development of the whole South Asian region.

The JKLF spokesman said that India and the international community must understand that for lasting and durable pace we all need to find solutions to the issues and problems that are jeopardizing peace. Dar said that President Trump had acknowledged the need of an early resolution of this issue and even offered his mediation on it, for which we the people of Jammu Kashmir thank him along with Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan.

President Trump has won the hearts of millions of people in Jammu and Kashmir, he said. The spokesman hoped that Indian leaderships shall also realize the need of a peaceful negotiated settlement of the Kashmir dispute. To start with, New Delhi should release all political leaders Including JKLF Chairman Muhammad Yasin Malik from jails, lift ban on JKLF and other organisations and allow peaceful democratic activities in Jammu and Kashmir to facilitate this healthy process.

Meanwhile, Jammu and Kashmir Salvation Movement Chairman, Zafar Akbar Butt on Wednesday said that dialogue was the only option to resolve long pending Kashmir dispute.
