Militancy and peace initiatives cannot go together, Senge Hasnan Sering

Militancy and peace initiatives cannot go together, Senge Hasnan Sering

Washington D.C., Mar. 30 (ANI): Asserting that Pakistan should treat all the regions of Jammu and Kashmir equally, Director of Gilgit Baltistan National Congress, Senge Hasnan Sering said that militancy and peace talks cannot go hand in hand, adding that peace will come only when all the stakeholders would share dividends and responsibilities.

"Militancy and peace initiatives cannot go hand in hand. You have to equally treat all the regions of Jammu and Kashmir. If you leave Gilgit Baltistan and Ladakh then that's a exude policy. India must not support that. This is an issue of the whole region and peace will come when all the stakeholders will share dividends and responsibilities," Sering told ANI.

Sering further stated that India cannot take Pakistan seriously until and unless it treats the violent elements seriously.

"If Pakistan promotes peace initiatives and make the divided families meet and a situation is created to test Pakistan's sincerity, then India and Pakistan should not delay in talking about the Kashmir issue. Pakistan is not against violence. It is against those elements who give a tough time to Pakistani elements," he added.
Sering was speaking in context of Pakistan Joint Investigation team's probe in the Pathankot terror attack.

The probe team arrived in the national capital on March 27 and visited the headquarters of the National Investigation Agency (NIA) the next day.
However, it did not demand any input of the investigation carried out by the Indian agency.
The NIA, on its part, gave a detailed presentation to the JIT on the evidence collected during the course of the Pathankot terror attack probe.

The probe team visited the Pathankot air base yesterday and begun the probe into the deadly terror attack by visiting the site of the incident. After the investigation, which went on for near about two hours, the Pakistan JIT left for Pakistan.
This was the first time that Pakistani intelligence and police officials travelled to India to investigate a terror attack case. (ANI)
