Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Mohammad Faisal on Thursday (August 29), during his weekly briefing made it clear that there has been no change in Pakistan’s policy on Israel after some in the country suggested establishing diplomatic ties.
He rejected India’s repeated claims that Kashmir is internal matter of India and said that, Kashmir has be internationally recognized as a disputed territory.
“Indian occupying forces have been deployed at every corner in the valley as the clampdown enters its fourth week.” “We are curious as to why the Hurriyat leaders continue to be detained in Indian occupied Kashmir. Yesterday we called the Indian high commissioner and lodged our protest against the atrocities in the valley,” he added.
“The Indian hypocrisy is at an all-time high. Kashmir is not an internal matter but has now become an international issue,” Dr. Faisal said. “The Kashmir issue should be solved keeping in mind the UNSC resolutions.” “At home, India calls Kashmir an internal issue while outside they call it a bilateral issue. India is not ready for bilateral talks. India can keep saying whatever it wants to. It will not change the truth,” Dr. Faisal said.
“The step India has taken has trapped it at an international level. We cannot move forward with a resolution on the Kashmir issue without keeping the stability of the region and the emotions of Kashmiris in check,” he added.
On the subject of the Afghan peace process, Dr. Faisal said Pakistan has always supported the peace process in Afghanistan. “The peace process negotiations have entered the final phase between the US and Taliban. Pakistan wants peace in Afghanistan.”
