Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Saturday (August 17) while addressing a joint press conference with Director General Inter-Services Public Relations Major General Asif Ghafoor, announced two major diplomatic efforts to resolve Kashmir dispute.
Sharing details from the special committee meeting held prior to the media talk, Qureshi said a special cell on Kashmir would be constituted at the Pakistan Foreign Office, which would be responsible for devising a future course of action on the prevailing situation in occupied Kashmir, subject to his approval.
A Kashmir desk would also be established in all Pakistani embassies around the world in light of the ongoing crisis, the foreign minister announced.
During the Press conference, he warned that Pakistan army and the nation are ready to defend if India resorts to any misadventure in an attempt to divert the world’s attention from the ongoing lockdown in occupied Kashmir. “India can [resort to] misadventure in its attempt to divert the world’s attention away from its actions in occupied Kashmir. The Pakistan army and the nation are ready to defend if India attempts any misadventure,” he said.
He lauded the historic United Nations Security Council (UNSC) meeting held on Friday, which saw the council members urge the parties involved to refrain from any unilateral action that may aggravate the situation.
