Pakistan sticks to its principled position on Kashmir dispute whose resolution lies only in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.
This has been sated by the President Dr Arif Alvi while addressing the session of AJK Legislative Assembly in Muzaffarabad on Friday. He reaffirmed Pakistan’s determination to continue to extend moral, political and diplomatic support to the Kashmiri people in their just struggle for right to self-determination.
On the occasion, Dr Arif Alvi has said that Pakistan has always given peace a chance but regretted that India is taking the matters towards deterioration. He noted that Pakistan-India relations cannot improve without resolution of the lingering dispute.
The President has welcomed the recent statements of the UN Secretary General and said the world can no longer turn its back to the outstanding dispute. He said that Pakistan will continue to highlight the Indian disgusting acts at the international forums including the United Nations and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).
Dr Arif Alvi lamented that India has imposed ban on communications and internet in the occupied territory to hide its crimes. He condemned the use of pellet guns saying these blinded innocent children and women.
“India is making attempts to change the demographic structure by deploying nine hundred thousand troops and introducing controversial legislation. Despite all these tactics, the Kashmiri people stand firm in their struggle to get freedom from the cruel Indian clutches,” he added.
He demanded that India allow the international media to visit the illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir to see the ground situation.
