Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said that Pakistan has decided to approach United Nations Security Council (UNSC) over India’s illegal stance on Kashmir Issue.
During a news conference, Qureshi said he hand conveyed to his Indian counterpart S Jaishankar that New Delhi’s stance of revoking Article 370 being an internal matter had been dismissed by Islamabad. “I said this was not right and Pakistan dismisses this stance. Occupied Kashmir is an internationally recognised dispute. There are several UNSC resolutions on this and making those as the basis we have decided to once again go to the UNSC.”
Pakistan’s foreign office spokesperson Dr. Mohammad Faisal on Thursday (August 8) rejected India’s statement terming the deteriorating situation in occupied Kashmir its “internal affair”. “Pakistan categorically rejects India’s [statement] that Kashmir is an internal matter,” Dr. Faisal said, as he reaffirmed that Pakistan will continue its political, diplomatic and moral support to Kashmiris in achieving their right to self-determination.
