Islamabad, February 10 (KMS): Pakistan has said that India’s baseless claims over Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir can neither change the facts of history nor the legal status of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute.
The Foreign Office Spokesperson, Asim Iftikhar, in a statement on Thursday said IIOJK never was and never will be India’s “integral part”. He said India is an occupation force in IIOJK in clear violation of the relevant United Nations Security Council resolutions and its illegal and unilateral actions of 5 August 2019 to change the internationally recognized disputed status of the territory and to alter its demographic structure, have been rejected by the Kashmiris, by Pakistan, and by the international community.
The Spokesperson said, rather than resorting to false and misleading assertions without success, India must vacate its illegal occupation, immediately reverse its illegal and unilateral actions and let the Kashmiris exercise their inalienable right to self-determination through a free and impartial plebiscite.
Asim Iftikhar categorically rejected the unwarranted and preposterous comments made by the Spokesperson of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs on the Pakistan-China Joint Statement. He said Pakistan has already shared irrefutable evidence of India’s sinister campaign to sabotage CPEC through its dossiers released in 2020 and 2021.
The Spokesperson said there is strong evidence of Indian involvement in recent sinister attempts to stir up unrest in Balochistan by supporting anti-state elements and Indian Naval Commander Kulbhushan Jadhav is a living and irrefutable proof of how India has been seeking to sponsor and patronize subversive activities in Pakistan and the region.
