NA condemns Indian claim about IOK


ISLAMABAD, Sept 27 (APP): The National Assembly on Tuesday strongly condemned the Indian claim in the United Nations General Assembly about Jammu and Kashmir being its integral part.

The House adopted a resolution moved by Pakistan Peoples Party Parliamentarians (PPPP) MNA Syed Naveed Qamar that also had input of the government and Advisor to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz.

“This House vociferously condemns falsified Indian claim in United Nations General Assembly about Jammu and Kashmir; being integral part of India,” said the resolution.

It stated that the Indian External Affairs Minister in a blatantly hostile speech punctuated with false accusations at the 71st session of UNGA conveniently ignored earlier Indian admission of Jammu and Kashmir as a disputed territory.

“It is a fact that the Jammu and Kashmir issue is still on the agenda of the UNGA and Kashmir is universally accepted a disputed territory,” the House resolved.

The House also resented the parallels drawn between Jammu and Kashmir, a recognized disputed territory, and Balochistan which an integral part of sovereign Pakistan.

“This House warns all foreign perpetrators of terrorism inside Pakistan to look towards their own policies of terror funding and terror peddling.”

The House resolved that the Modi government has a history of threats with misguided belief that Pakistan will down away from its support to innocent Kashmiris being butchered by Indian forces.

“We believe that peace and progress is dependent upon good neighborly relations and the only way forward is through constructive dialogue and not current threats being
issued by the Indian Prime Minister to unilaterally terminate the Indus Water Treaty,” the resolution stated.

The House resolved that the hostile environment being perpetuated by the current Indian government and its apparent learning toward war hysteria will not be in the best
interest of the region.
