Pakistan Condemns Indian Govt’s Decision On J&K
GUWAHATI: The Pakistan government has condemned the Indian government’s decision to scrap Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, removing the special status granted to the state of J&K.
“Pakistan strongly condemns and rejects the announcements made today by the Indian Government regarding the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir," said Pakistan Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement.
Pakistan’s external affairs ministry mentioned, “the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir is an internationally recognized disputed territory", and that no unilateral step by Indian government can change this disputed status, as enshrined in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolutions.
“This will never be acceptable to the people of Jammu and Kashmir and Pakistan.”
The statement added, “As the party to this international dispute, Pakistan will exercise all possible options to counter the illegal steps. Pakistan reaffirms its abiding commitment to the Kashmir cause.”
