ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – Special Assistant to the Prime Minister for Information and Broadcasting Firdous Ashiq Awan on Sunday said that Pakistan is acting as a bridge to maintain peace in the region as Pakistan has made sacrifices to achieve peace in the region.
In her statement, Firdous Ashiq Awan said that India is violating the constitutional, legal and human rights of Kashmiris. The struggle of Kashmiris will not be wasted.
She reiterated Pakistan’s support for struggle of Kashmiris for the right of self-determination and paid tribute to the martyrs of Indian occupied Kashmir.
