Islamabad, August 27: Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has on Monday rejected India’s ‘all is well’ remark in Kashmir – what Islamabad calls it Indian-occupied Kashmir (IOK), as “deceptive”.
Qureshi made his comment during addressing a session on ‘Annexation of Occupied Kashmir by Modi’s India: Challenges and Responses’, organized by the Pakistan Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, according to Dawn news reports.
Qureshi said the Indian government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was attempting recycling “half-backed truths” to withdraw legitimate status from the Kashmiri struggling for their right to self-determination by referring it with terrorism and further distracting the global attention from its human atrocities in the region. He also called for increasing the Kashmiris’ voices and putting an end to their sufferings.
“Pakistan will go to every forum to ensure that Indian atrocities in IOK are halted and the dispute is resolved in line with the aspiration of the Kashmiris and the UNSC resolutions,” he resolved.
Urging the international community to play their vital role in safeguarding tensions over Kashmir – what he termed as a nuclear focus point, from making the pertaining situation more worse, the foreign minister emphasized the silence over the matter wasn’t an option.
“Indian aggression and hegemonic designs are a threat to regional peace and security and need to be taken seriously,” he said, while simultaneously noting Pakistan didn’t want to escalate the Kashmir crisis and remains open for ending the confrontation.
Dr. Shireen Mazari, Federal Minister for Human Rights, said New Delhi was gradually escalating tension and a qualitative shifShah Mehmood Qureshi: Pakistan doesn’t want escalation of Kashmir crisis, opens for ending deadlockt had been in seen there with types of violations to Line of Control (LoC).
