AJK Prime Minister Raja Farooq Haider says the government and the people of Azad Kashmir full support Nawaz Sharif's Kashmir policy.

Talking to media in Islamabad on Monday, he said Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has effectively highlighted the Kashmir issue on the international forums.

Raja Farooq Haider said his government thanks Nawaz Sharif for doubling our budget. He urged all the political parties of Pakistan to join forces on the issue of Kashmir. He said now the time has come when the longstanding issue of Kashmir should be raised at the UN Security Council.

The AJK Prime Minister said he respects all the institutions of Pakistan but there should be no impression that any kind of discrimination is being done with Nawaz Sharif.

He said that political parties should wait for the 2018 elections and refrain from creating chaos in the country. He said there should be peaceful transition of power to strengthen democracy in the country. He said the people of Kashmir will fully support PML-N in next general elections.

Raja Farooq Haider said India wanted to escalate situation on the Line of Control by targeting civilian population there. He said India wants displacement of over half million population living along the LOC, but valiant forces of Pakistan are effectively foiling enemy's bid. He said the AJK Government will not leave any stone unturned to mitigate sufferings of the people living on LOC.

To a question, he said China-Pakistan Economic Corridor will bring progress and prosperity to the entire region.
