ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says regional peace and security is under threat due to India’s step of revoking the special status of Occupied Kashmir.
Addressing a news conference in Islamabad on Thursday, he said over one hundred and seventy days have been passed of the lockdown of Kashmir where all fundamental rights stand usurped.
The Foreign Minister said Indian steps reflect its unilateralism and depict its non-seriousness in resolving issues through bilateralism.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the issue was brought to UN Security Council after a lapse of fifty years on 16th of August this year.
He said continued ceasefire violations along Line of Control by India were reported by UNMOGIP. The UNMOGIP admitted complete support and cooperation from Pakistan side, unlike India where there are a lot of restrictions for UN observers.
He said the Prime Minister has decided to launch a detailed campaign and plan to sensitize the people in Pakistan and abroad on Kashmir issue.
The Foreign Minister said a campaign will be launched from Saturday to highlight the Kashmir issue through print, social and electronic media.
Responding to a question, he said entire India stands against the citizenship amendment act that exposed the reality of so-called secular and democratic India before the world community.
In response to another question, Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the whole nation is united to raise the case of innocent Kashmiris on every international forum.
