Kashmiri Leaders Meet FM Qureshi

Foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi has deplored that instead of introspection, Indian government and its media hurled baseless accusations against Pakistan, without any investigation.

A delegation of 14 parliamentary leaders of Azad Jammu and Kashmir led by the Prime Minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir Raja Muhammad Farooq Haider Khan met with foreign minister. The delegation exchanged views with the foreign minister on the appalling situation of human rights in Indian occupied Kashmir, particularly in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack.

Foreign minister stated that denial by India of the right to self-determination to the Kashmiri people continue to keep hostage the peace and security of the nuclearized south Asia.

The foreign minister regretted that following the Pulwama attack, India has intensified its crackdown against innocent Kashmiris. He condemned India’s unprovoked shelling across the Line of Control and the working boundary.
