Speaking on Pakistan’s Channel 24, Pakistan’s new Federal Minister for Human Rights, Shireen Mazari, expressed hope that her draft of the proposal will be ready by the end of next week. Once it’s ready, it would be circulated, she added.

“We will circulate it to all stakeholders, show it to the Cabinet and to the Prime Minister”, Mazari said. When asked precisely what the proposal was about, she said that it is a ‘model for conflict resolution’.
Mazari has also accused the US of vitiating Pakistan’s ‘goodwill gesture’ of allowing US State Secretary Mike Pompeo calling up Imran Khan to congratulate him, and not US President Trump.
Earlier this month Imran Khan had batted for trade and ties between the two countries, while addressing a celebratory news briefing shortly after the Pakistan election results were announced. “Unfortunately, the biggest core issue between us is Kashmir”. He continued: “We should attempt to resolve this. If we continue the blame-game and assume ‘Pakistan does this’ and what happens in Balochistan happens due to India, we won’t get anywhere. Let’s take the first step.”
He concluded by saying that it is important for the subcontinent that we have peace and that we resolve the issue through talks.
