Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has been reached China on a diplomatic mission along with foreign secretary Sohail Mehmood and senior officials of the Foreign Ministry.
During his visit, the Foreign Minister will hold meetings with the top leadership of China. The Chinese leadership will be apprised of the illegal move of the Indian government by revoking the special status of occupied Kashmir and grave violations of human rights in the valley.
Earlier, the Foreign Minister briefed members of the Diplomatic Corps on India’s decision to end the special constitutional status of the disputed territory of held Kashmir. He urged the diplomats to stop India from committing blatant violations of human rights of the Kashmiri people.
It must be noted that on August 5, India’s BJP government moved a bill in the upper house of the parliament (Rajaya Sabha) to remove Article 370 from the Indian constitution amid opposition members’ protest.
Article 370 and 35-A had provided special constitutional guarantees to local population against fears of demographic change. Kashmir disputed under the UNSC resolutions had joined India in 1947 under these special constitutional guarantees. The United Nations on Thursday expressed deep concern over the abolition of occupied Kashmir‘s special status with abrogation of the Article 370 and warned India to refrain from changing its legal status.
