ISLAMABAD: Foreign Minister (FM) Shah Mehmood Qureshi has said Indian strategy has miserably failed in Occupied Kashmir and voices are being raised on failure of Indian strategy from within India.
He said in a statement here Friday that India is using force against unarmed Kashmiris since the last 7 decades but Kashmir issue will not be resolved through use of force.
He remarked India tried to gag the voice of Kashmiris through unilateral laws and restrictions. The atrocities being perpetrated against Kashmiris by Indian troops after August 5, 2019 are unprecedented in the world history. India can succeed for the time being in suppressing the voice of Kashmiris but such brutalities will not help address Kashmir problem, he added.
He observed Indian inhuman moves have triggered provocation among the Kashmiris in Occupied Kashmir. Azad Kashmir flag is being hoisted in Occupied Kashmir today. Long live Pakistan slogans are raised in Occupied Kashmir which testify that Kashmiris have not accepted unilateral steps taken by India.
He went on to say “ we will continue to take up Kashmir issue on every forum’ Kashmir issue is being debated upon in every world forum today.
He stated that he had met with foreign ministers of other countries on sidelineS of SCO session. Kashmir problem came under discussion during these bilateral meetings.
He pointed out that Prime Minister (PM) Imran Khan will talk about Kashmir problem during his address to UN General Assembly session on 25th. This will be discussed how UN ignored Kashmir issue. On one hand UN has made many achievements but on other hand it has failed in resolving Kashmir and Palestine issues.
“I said this during my meeting with the European Union envoy. EU is flag bearer of human rights therefore, it should raise voice against ongoing human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir”, he added.
He underlined human rights are being trampled ruthlessly in Occupied Kashmir.
I congratulate all on Pakistan success on the matter of Reko- Diq. Pakistan has got a big relief for the time being. When national economy is under pressure due to Corona, it is a big relief in these circumstances.
He observed “ China is our friend. China has always stood by Pakistan in trying time. We are enjoying historical ties with Saudi Arabia. We have an emotional attachment with Saudi Arabia.
“We have reopened educational institutes, We will have to ensure implementation of SOPs therein. Medical experts are expressing fear repeatedly that second wave of Corona can overtake in winter season. We will have to keep on adhering to precautionary measures, he stressed.
