"Clearly, there is no panacea to the region's security troubles, no single action that can cure its ills", a Dawn editorial said.

"Burhan Wani, the young leader murdered by Indian forces, has emerged as the symbol of the latest Kashmiri intifada, a popular and peaceful freedom movement, led by Kashmiris", said Sharif.

Pakistan's efforts to raise the stakes on the Kashmir issue, including by rattling its nuclear arsenal, has misfired.

"This is self-incrimination by Pakistan PM", Akbar said.

BJP spokesperson Nalin Kohli said that Pakistan doesn't want to leave terrorism and that they were trying to escalate the problem with India via infiltration bids.

"Kashmir occupation is by Pakistan occupation army".

Obama, Netanyahu to meet Wednesday on sidelines of United Nations summit
The White House viewed the appearance as unprecedented interference by a foreign leader. Its total defence budget amounts to some $16 billion, excluding the United States aid.


Pakistan, a rogue state which many countries around the world look upon as a cradle of terrorism, has repeatedly waged wars on India.

These brutalities, the prime minister said, would not suppress the spirit of the Kashmiris, rather it would only intensify their anger and fortify their determination to see India end its occupation of Kashmir. The Prime Minister is scheduled to meet President of Iran Hassan Rouhani and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.

He said Pakistan fully supports the demand of the Kashmiri people for self-determination, as promised to them by several Security Council resolutions and urged the United Nations to intervene and assist in solving the Kashmir dispute.

India has raised the issue of terrorists crossing over from the Pakistani Kashmir.

"As a responsible nuclear weapon state, Pakistan will continue to cooperate with all global efforts that seek to promote fair and equitable solutions to disarmament and non-proliferation challenges", he said. "We have adopted a comprehensive export control regime that is fully consistent with worldwide standards", the Pakistan Prime Minister said. It involves the various branches of India's military conducting offensive operations as part of unified battle groups.

Though the JeM is yet to claim responsibility for the attack, it had admitted to its role in the cross-border attack on the Pathankot Indian Air Force base on January 2 this year that left seven Indian security personnel dead.
