COAS visits troops on LoC, says Kashmir remains core unresolved agenda.

RAWALPINDI -- Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa said that Kashmir remains an unresolved agenda, said an Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) statement on Wednesday.

According to the ISPR, the COAS visited the troops deployed at the Line of Control, where he said that Pakistan Army is completely ready and resolute in defending the motherland against any misadventure.

Gen Bajwa said that the army is fully invested in the peace and stability of the region. 'Kashmir remains a core unresolved agenda and we standby the Kashmiris in their historical stance,' he said.

The statement by the army chief comes at a time of heightened tension in Indian-occupied Kashmir, where the Indian forces have martyred over a dozen Kashmiri youths, including PhD scholars, this month.

Indian soldiers martyred these youths during the so-called cordon and search operations. Yesterday, Indian forces martyred three Kashmiri youngsters, including PhD scholar Sabzar Ahmed Sufi.

The occupying forces martyred another four youths in Baramula and Islamabad today, and detained nine others.
