    ISLAMABAD: Three government officials have been suspended in Azad Kashmir for quoting Prime MinisterNawaz Sharif as having said that Kashmir was a flashpoint that could trigger a fourth war with India, a media report said on Saturday.

    The statement was, however, denied by Sharif's office. The three officers of Information Department have been suspended for their "poor performance", the Express Tribune newspaper reported.

    Press information department (PID) directorChaudhry Abdur Rashid, press information officer Parvez Ahmed and assistant directorKhawaja Imran were suspended for issuing "irrelevant material" to the media that "embarrassed" premier Sharif and his government, the paper said.

    PID secretary Shehla Waqar had also sent a summary to the information ministry to hold an inquiry into the matter.

    The ministry had released a press statement misquoting Sharif, stating that "Kashmir was a flashpoint and that unless the issue was resolved there was a possibility of a fourth war between Pakistan and India".

    This prompted Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to issue a strong-worded statement reminding Sharif of the consequences of war.
