Shibli said that China is subtly giving the indications and positioning itself with the presence of its boots in Gilgat and its incursions in Ladakh. Its measured decision to grant staple visa`s to Kashmir`s holding Indian Passport are signs of its interests and stakes in the region of Kashmir, which cannot be disregarded as meaningless overtures.
WKDA Secretary General lambasted the lack of political will and courage within the Western power Centers, especially the United States and European Union to resolve the conflicts in Asia and Middle East. The international community and United Nation has failed to address the conflicts that have potentially dangerous consequences within the regions of Middle East and South Asia.
