Qaiser who was elected as the speaker of Pakistan's National Assembly in August last year also added that regional powers must collaborate closely to quell terrorism which continues to spread on a daily basis. He said, through anti-terror conferences, additional policies and laws can be drafted which would become beneficial in maintaining a peaceful environment.
Speaking exclusively to Turkish news channel ANews regarding the issue of Kashmir, Qaiser reinforced his country's stance on the use of U.N. resolutions to establish a peaceful solution for the troubled region. He added that Indian Prime Minister Modi should allow international human rights organizations to monitor the current situation in Kashmir to highlight the 'grave' ground realities.
When asked if a military solution was on the cards, the National Assembly Speaker said: "Options are in abundance but a political dialogue would be the appropriate course of action."
