Norwegian Parliament urges India Pakistan to resolve Kashmir issue

Oslo - The Norwegian Parliament has conducted an important debate for the second time in a year addressing the Kashmir conflict. An earlier debate was held in 2010 and again in September 2012 when the Norwegian parliament raised the issue of existence of unidentified mass graves in occupied Kashmir. The interpolation entitled “Kashmir on the backdrop of withdrawal of foreign troops from Afghanistan in 2014” was submitted for a debate by the Chairman of the Norwegian parliamentary Kashmir Committee and Christian Democrat (KrF) Party leader Mr. Knut Arild Hareide. The debate which lasted for nearly one hour, had the intervention of all major political parties, parliamentarians and representatives. During the debate, the Norwegian Foreign Minister Mr. Espen Barth Eide stated that it is very important to closely monitor and contribute to a united world community seeks to assist both countries in this tense situation. He outlined that the conflict between India and Pakistan has deep historical roots: “There are many challenges associated with Kashmir. I do not think that a solution will be found in a kind of breakthrough, where everything suddenly negotiated done. I rather believe in a long-term process in which parties take step by step and build trust. Here's what we - as part of the international community - still have to show patience, so that the parties get the time they need for themselves to arrive at sustainable solutions. Our role is thus to hold both parties accountable. We must stress that rights and duties are reciprocal sizes.”
