Pakistan reveals logic behind not attending OIC Foreign Ministers Conference

ISLAMABAD - Foreign Office spokesperson says Pakistan believes that with a record of horrendous human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir, India has no legal or moral ground to be present at OIC Council of Foreign Ministers meeting.

The spokesperson in a statement said India is a country with unresolved disputes with Pakistan, a founding member of OIC. India has consistently rejected OIC resolutions on the Jammu & Kashmir dispute, adopted at the OIC Foreign Ministers and Summit levels. Only last year, India rejected the OIC resolutions on Jammu & Kashmir by stating that India dismisses it with the contempt it deserves.

The spokesman added that Pakistan's strong objections in this regard have been clearly communicated. The Foreign Minister of Pakistan will not participate in the OIC Council of Foreign Ministers.

Earlier, talking to Radio Pakistan's News and Current affairs Channel, Foreign Office spokesperson Dr. Mohammad Faisal says Pakistan is a peace loving country and always wants good relations with all neighbors.

He says Pakistan will respond to any aggression imposed on it.

He said Pakistan is always ready for dialogue and negotiations but it is India that is evading it. He said all issues can be resolved through talks only.

He said Pakistani nation has shown a firm resolve against hostility by its neighbor.

On the announcement of Prime Minister to release Indian pilot, he said it is a peace gesture and also in line with Islamic ethical values.

On a question regarding the provision of dossier on Pulwama attack by Indian government, he said our technical experts will review it and then respond to India.
