Islamabad: Pakistan will continue to extend its "fullest political, moral and diplomatic support" to the "just cause" of the Kashmiri people, President Asif Ali Zardari has said.
In a message on the occasion of Kashmir Solidarity Day that is observed by Pakistan on February 5 every year, Zardari said the country would continue to express "complete solidarity with the Kashmiris".
The Kashmiri people will have Pakistan's "fullest political, moral and diplomatic support to their just cause", he said.
The government and the people observe Kashmir Solidarity Day by "renewing their unswerving support for the just struggle of the Kashmiri people for the realisation of their fundamental and inalienable rights", he contended.
Pakistan seeks a "peaceful settlement of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute", he added.
Claiming that the Kashmiri people have rendered sacrifices to uphold their dignity and freedom and for fulfillment of the promise for effective exercise of their right to self-determination, Zardari said it is important that fundamental human rights of the people of Jammu and Kashmir are respected and promoted.
In recent years, the peaceful struggle of the people of Jammu and Kashmir has "gained strength and intensity", he claimed.
He said a new generation of Kashmiris continues to wage a struggle for their fundamental rights.
