ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Foreign Minister (FM) Shah Mahmood Qureshi telephoned Danish Foreign Minister Jeppe Kofod and his Norway counterpart Ine Marie Eriksen Søreide on Wednesday and apprised them of the prevailing situation in Occupied Kashmir.
FM Qureshi informed them about the Indian unilateral step of abrogating the special status of IoK to change the demographic composition of the territory.
The minister said the unilateral actions by India are in total contravention of international laws and UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions. He also said India has put in place a complete curfew in occupied territory since fifth of this month and committing relentless human rights violations there.
He said the UN secretary general has also taken notice of the situation. He said the Kashmiri people have no access to food and medicines due to complete clampdown.
The foreign minister said Pakistan has always expressed readiness and are ready for talks with India. He asked his Danish counterpart to play his role to get the curfew lifted in occupied Kashmir and bring an end to the difficulties faced by Kashmiri people.
The Danish foreign minister said his country has concerns on the current situation. “We will ask both the sides to pursue the course of dialogue to save the region from any conflict,” he added.
Earlier today, US President Donald Trump
has said that he will do his best to mediate or help somehow with the tensions between India and Pakistan over Kashmir issue.
Speaking to the journalists at Oval office, he said Kashmir is a complicated issue and he would discuss the issue with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the weekend at G-7 meeting in France.
“We are helping the situation, but there are tremendous problems between two countries and I will do the best I can to mediate or do something,” Donald Trump said.
