Pakistan stands with Kashmiri people: Firdouse


Special Assistant on Information and Broadcasting Dr. Firdous Ashiq Awan has said Pakistan’s Parliament will send across a strong message through its joint session that the country stands with Kashmiris in their just struggle for right to self-determination in Occupied Kashmir. Talking to media outside Parliament House on Tuesday, she said the ongoing two-day special parliamentary session on the situation in Occupied Kashmir and India’s move to revoke Article 370 should give a united stance of Pakistan.

The Special Assistant said the opposition should not do politics on the issue, and it should voice with the government in condemnation of the recent Indian acts.

Firdous Ashiq Awan said Prime Minister Imran Khan is contacting various world leaders on the developments in India on Kashmir.

She said Pakistan will forcefully present the case of Kashmir at every relevant international forum.

The Special Assistant said the Indian government’s move of revoking Article 370 is disrespect and violation of the UN Security Council resolutions on the Kashmir issue.

She said the United Nations should seek answer from India for this act to ensure protection of its resolutions on the issue.=DNA
