Pakistan pledges support to Kashmiri autonomy

Pakistani prime minister, Yousuf Raza Gilani, reiterated the country's support for Kashmiri autonomy.

Addressing a crowd gathered for a session of the Council of Pakistan controlled Kashmir, held in Islamabad on Wednesday, Gilani said,

"The government and people of Pakistan will always stand by their Kashmiri brethren in their quest for self-determination and continue to extend their full political, moral and diplomatic support to them."

“The Kashmir cause was close to the hearts of every Pakistani and their commitment to their cause of self-determination was unwavering,” he added.


Gilani urged progress on establishing a "peaceful and negotiated resolution" of the Kashmiri problem.
