Furthermore, he also shared a weblink of the article “The Kashmir challenge” by Ashraf Jahangir Qazi, the former ambassador to the US, India and China and head of UN missions in Iraq and Sudan, that was published in a national daily on Friday.
An excerpt of the article said, “The 21st century has one message for nuclear-armed India and Pakistan: cooperate or perish. The seas are rising. Land, water and jobs will disappear.”
It also stated, “Populations cannot cope. Stresses of every kind are increasing. Reason and moderation are giving way to atavistic passions, insane hatred and self-destructive machismo. Cooperating to reverse this fatal trend will provide a context for a Kashmir settlement”.
