Chief of the Army Staff (COAS), General Qamar Javed Bajwa met students and faculty of various educational institutions of Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJ&K), members of both Youth Parliament Pakistan and the Youth State Assembly from AJ&K at ISPR headquarters on September 26, 2019.
While addressing the Kashmiri youth COAS reiterated, “Kashmir is part and parcel of our soul. It is not an issue of geography but our love for the people of Kashmir. The Kashmir dispute has to be resolved as per the aspirations of people of Kashmir and relevant UNSC resolutions. India’s deliberate targeting of innocent civilians in AJ&K and continued siege of innocent Kashmiris in IOJ&K are the worst examples of human rights violations. We stand by our Kashmiri brothers and sisters, and shall never disappoint them”.
COAS urged the youth to stay steadfast, work hard and have confidence in themselves and the national leadership. The COAS further advised, “Continue working hard as in your success is the success of Pakistan”. The Kashmiri youth also conveyed their resolve and declared that Kashmiris on both sides of the LOC were, are and shall stay Pakistanis.
