Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says the UNSC meeting on Kashmir has negated and exposed Indian tactics to put the Kashmir issue under the carpet.
The Foreign Minister, in a parallel briefing in Islamabad, underscored the big diplomatic victory for Pakistan as for the first time after 1965, the issue of Kashmir had been brought to the Security Council. He congratulated the nation as new life had been breathed into an issue which was “thought of as dead”.
He said this UNSC session is a testimony to the fact that the international community is fully vigilant over the human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir. Foreign Minister said a consultative meeting has been convened at Foreign Office in Islamabad tomorrow to discuss further building blocks after this session.
The foreign minister said that the meeting itself was an achievement for Pakistan as it negated the Indian claim that Kashmir was its internal matter. He said that once again the global community had recognised Kashmir as a disputed region. The minister said that the Foreign Office would further assess the achievement in a meeting tomorrow and deliberate the next steps to take.
He vowed that Pakistan will continue to stand by the Kashmiri people “to every extent”. He also thanked various human rights organisations for continuing to highlight the issue as well as the UNSC.
