Sharif said Pakistan was committed to the Kashmiri cause, Radio Pakistan reported. "No power in the world can stop us from supporting the freedom struggle of Kashmiris.

"India is mistaken if it considered that the freedom fight (in Jammu and Kashmir) could be equated with terrorism," he said.

The Prime Minister was chairing a meeting of his party's Central Working Committee. The meeting condemned the Indian "aggression" along the Line of Control (LoC), the radio said.

More than 90 protesters have been killed in the Kashmir Valley in clashes with security forces since Wani's 8 July killing.
