EU delegation, AJK PM discuss latest situation of IIOJK

Muzaffarabad, November 04 (KMS): A two-member delegation of European Parliament visited Muzaffarabad and met the Prime Minister of Azad Jammu and Kashmir, Sardar Tanveer Ilyas Khan.

According to Kashmir Media Service, the EU members Juvin Herve and Virginie Joron discussed with the AJK Prime Minister the latest situation of Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir.

The AJK Prime Minister on the occasion said that India was constantly involved in grave human rights violation in IIJOK. He said after scraping the special status of the occupied territory on August 5, 2019, the Modi-led fascist Indian government has snatched all the basic human rights of the Kashmiri people. He denounced India’s attempt to change the demography of IIOJK by issuing domiciles to Indian residents to convert the Muslim majority into a minority.

Sardar Tanveer Ilyas said that Indian forces’ personnel were martyring the Kashmiri people and destroying their residential houses and properties on a daily bases. He also said that Modi regime was hell-bent to cripple the economy of the territory by targeting various business outlets.

The AJK Prime Minister deplored the silence of the international community on the Indian brutalities in IIOJK. He maintained that Pakistan wanted peace in the region and the peaceful settlement of issues between India and Pakistan, particularly the Kashmir dispute which was lingering from over seven decades.

The European delegation members on the occasion said that they were fully aware of the international issues and whenever Kashmir comes into discussion, a beautiful picture of mesmerizing beauty of mountainous steams, waterfalls and valleys of Kashmir came across their minds.

They regretted that mostly the western people don’t know the difference between Azad Kashmir and Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir in political terms because of minute knowledge about this region, and expressed their resolve that they would play their role in highlighting the Kashmir dispute on the international level.

Senior minster Khawaja Farooq Ahmed, Finance Minister Abdul Majid Khan, Minister for Forest Muhammad Akmal Sargala, Chairman Inspection Commission Raja Mansoor Khan, AJK Chief Secretary Dr Muhammad Usman Chachar, Principal Secretary Ehsan Khalid Kiyani, Secretary Presidential Affairs Dr. Syed Asif Hussain and Secretary Services Raja Pervez were also present on the occasion.
