Pakistan-China nexus needs to be broken to solve Kashmir issue: self-exiled Uyghur leader
Washington: A self-exiled Uyghur leader has said only when the nexus between China and Pakistan could be broken the Kashmir issue can be solved.
Ilshat Hassan Kokbore said China has to be stopped from backing Pakistan and India can play a vital role in this case.
He also went on to call Pakistan “a fake democracy, living in the Middle Ages”, reported Financial Express.
Releasing a 48-page Report on ‘Comparative Study of Human Development and Human Rights in Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan’ done by Delhi-headquartered think-tank Law and Society Alliance, Ilshat Hassan Kokbore, Director of the Chinese Affairs Department of the World Uyghur Congress, echoed similar emotions, reported the newspaper.
“If we can stop China backing Pakistan, then the question of Jammu and Kashmir can be peacefully solved,” Kokbore, Director of the Chinese Affairs Department of the World Uyghur Congress told the newspaper.
“For finding a solution for Uighur and Jammu and Kashmir issues, we need to stop China. The route is in China and this is the number one threat to humanity,” Kokbore added while sharing his thoughts at a webinar, speaking through video conferencing from Washington DC.
“I don’t think without China’s support, Pakistan can continue its terrorism. If we counter China, Pakistan will come to the table to find a solution to the Jammu and Kashmir question.”
