OIC contact group on Kashmir to meet in September

ISLAMABAD: Sartaj condemned the use of lethal force by the Indian occupation forces in the IOK against the defenseless Kashmiris, who were protesting peacefully over extrajudicial killings, terming it 'deplorable'.

In the last 40 days, more than 80 Kashmiris were martyred, 6,000 injured and over a hundred have lost their eyesight due to pellet guns firing, he added.

The advisor thanked the OIC for consistently supporting Pakistan's stance over the issue.

"Peaceful resolution of the Jammu and Kashmir dispute, in accordance with the UN Security Council resolutions, which is in line with the aspirations of the people of Jammu and Kashmir, is an imperative for the regional peace and stability," he stressed.

Sartaj said the OIC Contact Group on Kashmir would be meeting again in September 2016, during the General Assembly Session in New York in the face of the gross violations of human rights in IOK .
