Recent viewpoint of British MPs regarding IIOJK, success of Pakistan’s diplomatic efforts: FM

Islamabad, January 17, 2021 (PPI-OT): Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has said that recent viewpoint of the British Parliamentarians regarding Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir situation is the success of Pakistan’s diplomatic efforts. Addressing a news conference in Multan, he said the British parliamentarians made it clear that Jammu and Kashmir is not an internal matter of India, but it is a global dispute.

He said India always tries to give impression that situation in Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir is normal. However, Pakistan exposed its nefarious designs to the world. Replying to a question about Machh mishap, the Foreign Minister said India is trying to create unrest in Pakistan by fanning sectarianism.

He said that some powers are also working to weaken Pakistan. However, their nefarious designs will not succeed. About country’s internal situation, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the government is taking different measures to control inflation. He observed that some people want to become rich overnight and they resorted to hoarding and profiteering which caused inflation. He, however, said that the government is very much active against the hoarders and profiteers.

Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the opposition parties particularly PML-N and the PPP should provide details of their party funds to the Election Commission by Tuesday before going to protest. He warned that the protest demonstration and sit-in of the opposition parties’ alliance should be in democratic manner and the law should not be taken into hand.
