By Naveen Kapoor New York, Sept.25 (ANI): Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari on Wednesday sought to revive Kashmir as the “core issue” of its ties with neighbouring India, and described the unrest in Jammu and Kashmir as “an indigenous uprising”. “Kashmir remains the core issue in India-Pakistan relations. The ongoing uprising in Kashmir is an indigenous one,” Zardari told Pakistani media persons at a briefing at Barclays Intercontinental here ahead of his meeting with the Indian Prime Minister. “Pakistan will continue moral support to Kashmiris,” he said. Zardari’’s address to the UN General Assembly Thursday is expected to refer to Kashmir and the alleged human rights abuses in Jammu and Kashmir. Zardari told reporters here that he would deliver a “memorable” address. In his recent address to Pakistan National Assembly, Zardari had spoken about creatively reinventing India-Pakistan relations and said he will solve the Kashmir issue before the next general elections in India in 2009. Manmohan Singh, on the other hand, had made it clear that cross-border terror would be the main issue in his talks with Zardari. (ANI)
