Sharif was addressing a public gathering on the occasion of his Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz's win in the "Azad Jammu and Kashmir" assembly election on Thursday.

In his first public address following an open heart surgery earlier this year, Sharif urged Kashmiris "not to forget those in (Indian) held Kashmir who are sacrificing their lives for freedom".

The PML-N is set to form the next government in Pakistan occupied Kashmir, whose official name is "Azad Jammu and Kashmir".

New Delhi had accused Islamabad of arming and training militants fighting to secede Jammu and Kashmir from India. Pakistan said it only provides moral and diplomatic backing to the separatist campaign.
