Islamabad, September 14, 2019 (PPI-OT): Minister for Foreign Affairs Makhdoom Shah Mahmood Qureshi said Pakistan’s concerted efforts had brought Kashmir issue in the limelight and the world’s reaction on humanitarian crisis in the territory had exposed the false Indian narrative on the indigenous independence movement of Kashmir.
Chairing the third meeting of the Kashmir Cell formed on the prime minister’s directive, the foreign minister said the way the international community had expressed its concerns over the horrific situation in IoK was unprecedented. The meeting was attended by Federal Law Minister Firogh Nasim, Special Assistant to PM on Information and Broadcasting Dr Firdous Ashiq Awan, civil and military authorities and senior officers of the foreign ministry.
The foreign minister briefed the meeting on his recent visit to Geneva and his meetings there. He viewed that the civil society, human rights organisations and international media had expressed serious reservations over the serious human rights violations by India in the IoK. Moreover, the joint statement issued by 58 countries of the UN Human Rights Council was also very encouraging, he added. He said the world was speaking out against the Indian barbaric acts in Kashmir that had also exposed its (Indian) false narrative.
