A big diplomatic success for Pakistan at the International front over Kashmir issue
JEDDAH: A big diplomatic success for Pakistan at the International front over Kashmir issue has been reported.
An emergency meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) Kashmir-focused wing has been called today after the Indian government rushed through a presidential decree earlier to abolish link Article 370 of the Constitution which granted special status to Indian-occupied Kashmir.
The session which will be held in Jeddah will be attended by representatives from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Azerbaijan, Turkey and other member countries.
On Monday, Indian Home Minister Amit Shah introduced the resolution to scarp Article 370 in Rajya Sabha, which revoked the special status granted to occupied Kashmir and made the state a Union Territory with the legislature.
The announcement sparked chaotic scenes in the Indian parliament, with opposition politicians shouting protests, and the Congress describing the decision as a "catastrophic step".
