2019-08-09 India-Pakistan||Pakistan to take India's move to annex occupied Kashmir to UN Security Council: Qureshi
[DAWN] Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood |
...a Pak political shape-changer. He is undistinguished except for his habit of periodically needing to have his lips reattached...
on Thursday announced that Pakistain would take the matter of India revoking the special status for Indian Kashmiree to the United Nations
...a lucrative dumping ground for the relatives of dictators and party hacks...
Addressing a presser in Islamabad, he said the decision had been taken in light of several pre-existing UN resolutions on the Kashmire dispute.
- Pakistan to approach UNSC regarding Kashmir
- India's claim that altering Kashmir status is its 'internal matter' rejected
- Pakistan has not closed its airspace
- Pakistan's commitment to complete Kartarpur Corridor stands
- Suspension of trade with India will not affect Pakistan's trade with Afghanistan
- Samjhota Express service to be discontinued
The minister said Pakistan rejected New Delhi's impression that scrapping Article 370 of the Indian constitution was its "internal matter", saying the claim was wrong from a historical, legal and moral perspective.
He also questioned India's claim that the change in the constitutional status was aimed at taking steps for the welfare of Kashmiris, wondering what had stopped New Delhi from taking such measures since Article 370 was inserted into the Indian constitution seven decades ago.
Noting that as many as 900,000 troops had been deployed in occupied Kashmir, he asked the Indian government whether turning the region into a virtual "jail" was one of its welfare steps.
Challenging India's claim that the Kashmir move was its internal matter, Qureshi said former Indian prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru had declared "countless times" making at least 14 solemn promises and commitments that "the future of Kashmir is going to be decided finally by the goodwill and pleasure of her people."
"The goodwill and pleasure of this (Indian) parliament is of no importance in this matter," the minister quoted Nehru as further saying.
