ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Wednesday has telephoned his Danish counterpart Jeppe Kofod on Wednesday and apprised him of the prevailing situation in Indian Occupied Kashmir.
FM Qureshi informed him about the Indian unilateral step of abrogating the special status of occupied Kashmir to change the demographic composition of the territory.
“The unilateral actions by India are in total contravention of international laws and UN Security Council resolutions,” Mr. Qureshi said.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said India has put in place a complete curfew in occupied territory since the fifth of this month and committing relentless human rights violations there.
He said the UN Secretary General has also taken notice of the situation. “The Kashmiri people have no access to food and medicines due to complete clampdown.”
“Pakistan has always expressed readiness and are ready for talks with India,” FM Qureshi maintained.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi asked his Danish counterpart to play his role to get the curfew lifted in occupied Kashmir and bring an end to the difficulties faced by Kashmiri people.
The Danish Minister of Foreign Affairs said his country has concerns on the current situation. ‘We will ask both the sides to pursue the course of dialogue to save the region from any conflict,” he said.
