ISLAMABAD- Federal Cabinet has condemned the Indian atrocities in occupied Kashmir in strongest terms.

Briefing on the meeting of cabinet at a press conference in Islamabad on Monday, Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif said India has set the worst example of state terrorism in Occupied Kashmir.

The emergency meeting of the Cabinet was convened on the killing of dozens of Kashmiris by Indian security forces.

He said the Cabinet has decided that 6th of April will be observed as Kashmir Solidary Day. The Prime Minister will address AJK Legislative Assembly to raise the enormity of the situation.

The Foreign Minister said Cabinet has also decided to send delegations to various countries to highlight the plight of Kashmiris.

He said he talked on telephone with counterparts from Turkey and Iran today regarding the serious situation and they were requested to play their role in forcing India to stop human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir. He said Secretary General of OIC and Saudi officials will also be contacted to impress upon India to stop its brutalities in occupied Kashmir.

Khawaja Asif said over 2000 ceasefire violations have taken place along Line of Control and Working Boundary during the past year, which is a threat for regional peace and could have negative implications leading to war.

Foreign Minister reiterated that Pakistan will continue its moral, diplomatic and political support to Kashmiris.
