Pakistan to send quake relief to J&K

October 20, 2005 09:00 IST

Pakistan was working on proposals to send a plane of relief goods to the quake-affected areas of Jammu and Kashmir.

The proposal to send relief goods to Jammu and Kashmir was made by the chairman of Pakistan's Kashmir Committee, Hamid Nasir Chattha, to Prime Minister Shaukat Aziz, an official press release said.

Chattha informed Aziz that the government-backed Kashmir Committee has decided to send a planeload of relief goods for the earthquake affected in Jammu and Kashmir, and requested Aziz to use his good offices to facilitate its transportation.

The Pakistan prime minister in turn appreciated the Kashmir Committee's role in highlighting the Kashmir cause, the release said.

'Pakistan was committed to a peaceful, just and equitable solution of the Kashmir dispute in accordance with the wishes and aspirations of the Kashmiri people,' Aziz said.

He also emphasised the need for all three stakeholders to the Kashmir dispute -- Pakistan, India, and Jammu and Kashmir -- to redouble their efforts to find a durable solution to the Kashmir dispute, the release said.
