Replying to various queries in a private television talk show, she said in the near future, Pakistan would consult all the members of the United Nations Security Council and seek ways to implement the UN resolutions on the Indian Occupied Kashmir (IoK).

Referring to the Prime Minister's speech at the 71st United Nations General Assembly session, Maleeha said Pakistan was ready for bilateral talks, but in fact, it was India which had shut doors on the dialogue.

On one hand, India was defying the UN resolutions and on the other, it was not giving access to the fact findings missions in the occupied valley, she added.

She termed such tactics 'no talks pastures' on part of the Indian government. Pakistan, she said, wanted a peaceful settlement of the issue.

Pakistan wanted to engage India through comprehensive dialogue process and definitely, it would push its narrative over the Indian views, she added.

She also regretted the diplomatic language used by the Indian leadership against Pakistan.

Dr Maleeha said the dossier handed over to the global leaders contained facts about the IoK situation.

The world had acknowledged Pakistan's immense sacrifices in the war against terrorism and reiterated support to the country, she replied in response to a question.

She said the world knew how the Kashmir movement started in the IoK in the backdrop of killing of a young Kashmiri leader, followed by inhuman atrocities committed by the Indian occupied forces against the whole populace, but now, this movement had reached to its peak.
