Engagement is the instrument that civilised communities have used to secure peace and settle disputes. India and Pakistan are no exception to this rule.

We strongly urge the GOP to allow AJK function in accordance with UN template on Kashmir. Self-serving engineering in the affairs of AJK has hurt the Kashmir case. AJK has a right to assume itself as envisaged in UNCIP Resolutions. @CMShehbaz @farooq_pm @OfficialDGISPR @UN

If there is any effort to prejudice the merits of 13th Amendment, it would leave us with no choice but to question the vires of role of GOP under UNCIP Resolutions. GOP would hurt itself if it hurts the interests of the people of the State. @CMShehbaz @farooq_pm @OfficialDGISPR
