Addressing the Special Session of the AJK Legislative Assembly here on Wednesday, the Prime Minister said that Kashmiris were not alone as Pakistan despite all its challenges firmly standing with the Kashmiri people.
“Pakistan is helping Kashmiris despite all difficulties. A national consensus should be developed in Pakistan to unite the nation. We will never let the Pakistan lower in Azad Jammu and Kashmir”, Haider stated.
Terming Pakistan an ultimate goal for Kashmiris, he said people of Jammu and Kashmir are ready to receive the enemies’ bullets at their chest before it comes to Pakistan.
