Pakistan FM Qureshi contacts two more World leaders over Occupied Kashmir
ISLAMABAD – Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Thursday phoned New Zealand Deputy New Zealand Deputy Prime Minister Winston Peters and Azerbaijan Foreign Minister Elmar Mammadyarov Maharram Oglu to apprise them of gross human rights violations in Occupied Kashmir and the deteriorating security situation in the region.
The foreign minister told the New Zealand deputy prime minister that India had abolished special status of Occupied Kashmir through a unilateral step on August 5 in contravention to the UN Security Council resolutions on the issue.
He said that India wanted to change demography of Occupied Kashmir through repressive tactics.
Shah Mahmood Qureshi said the unarmed people of Occupied Kashmir have been facing curfew for 25th day, which has caused shortage of food and medicines there. “There is a complete blockade of communication means so that the world could not know the facts on ground in Occupied Kashmir.”
He asked the New Zealand deputy prime minister to force India to lift the curfew immediately.
