Afzal Khan MEP welcomed the President of Azad Jammu & Kashmir, Sardar Masood Khan , to the European Parliament. He met with Socialists and Democrats Group in the European Parliament President Gianni Pittella, European Parliament Vice President mr Pascue to discuss human rights and security in Kashmir.
In the afternoon he addressed a packed room of MEPs and others, about how to improve human rights and peacefully resolve the Kashmir conflict, as well as the role the European Parliament can play. There was a lot of media interest. President’s speech was listened to in pin silence and was well received. I’m looking forward to our future cooperation on this important issue. We need a resolution of this dispute and end to suffering of Kashmiri people. All people of South Asia deserve peace and prosperity.
